To Base and Back Again

From NeoWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This is the "home page" for a series of tutorial articles. The tutorials follow the creation of a database designed to serve as a birder's log, tracking birding field trips, bird sightings, etc. This project is still very much in process. More tutorials will appear over time.

The list of articles appears twice below: first in the order they should be followed if you are working through the tutorial, then grouped by topic (tables, forms, etc.)

Note that the red links are articles that have not yet been written. In some cases, they are followed by a blue number in brackets. These are links to forum threads or other pages containing information I plan to use in the articles; they are also provided here for those who need more information about those features of base.
