In Region-State Test C, you will walk through a test that requires, among other things, all of the following: 

  • Use of the text-to-columns and special number formatting (e.g. SSN) in Excel 
  • Import of tables from Excel into Access (as new tables or new records appended to an existing table) 
  • Input masks for formatting fields in Access (e.g. SSN) 
  • Use of the Lookup Wizard in Access 
  • Exporting tables from Access to Word as an rtf file 
  • Creation and manipulation of Update queries in Access to update fields based on formula results and prescribed criteria
