Introduction to Built-In Functions

Before creating a new function that perform a specific task, first find out if that function exists already. The library built in Microsoft Access is very large (one of the largest you will ever see in the industry) and provides functions that cover many subjects, including general topics, algebra, conversion, finance, accounting, date, time, and strings, etc. The available functions are highly reliable so you can safely use them.
