ADVANCED REPORT TECHNIQUES

GETTING STARTED

  • Open the file SC_AC19_6a_FirstLastName_1.accdb, available for download from the SAM website.
  • Save the file as SC_AC19_6a_FirstLastName_2.accdb by changing the “1” to a “2”.
  • If you do not see the .accdb file extension in the Save As dialog box, do not type it. The program will add the file extension for you automatically.
  • To complete this SAM Project, you will also need to download and save the following data files from the SAM website onto your computer:
  • Support_AC19_6a_Claims.txt
  • Open the _GradingInfoTable table and ensure that your first and last name is displayed as the first record in the table. If the table does not contain your name, delete the file and download a new copy from the SAM website.
