Access Capstone Project
Creating, Querying, and Maintaining the Wee Ones Database Problem:
Elizabeth Jordan has asked you to work on a special project for the Wee Ones Day Care. She has been keeping information about the children in the program and their parents in Word documents and Excel workbooks, and she would like you to create an Access database for storing this information, using the data shown in Figure 1 – 7.
Elizabeth keeps a list of the children and their enrollment details in a Word document. She maintains their tuition and fee information in an Excel workbook.
She also maintains information on the children’s parents. She keeps their parents’ addresses in a Word document. However, she keeps the previous and current balances for each parent in an Excel workbook, which she provides to you electronically. The parents’ financial information includes the parent ID, their last and first names, previous balance, and current balance.
Elizabeth also keeps a list of which children belong to which parent. Each child has one parent listed as the ‘parent of record,’ but a parent or guardian may be responsible for more than one child. The following parents have one child in the program: Cho Song, Karen Leon, Mara Olivo, Mary Ann Arnold, Daniel Navarro, Addas Abdi, and Claire Montout. Allen Kwan has two children in the program. The Hunter twins’ mother’s name is Jennifer White. Barbara Lehmann is responsible for Emma Chao, Lucas Jordan, and Paul Lehmann. Susan Hargraves has reserved a place at Wee Ones for her child, but her child has not yet enrolled.
Instructions Part 1: Using the data shown in Figure 1 – 7, design and create the Wee Ones database. Use the database design guidelines provided in Chapter 1 to help you in the design process.
Instructions Part 2: Answer the following questions, using the Parent table, and include the Parent ID, parent’s first and last names, City, Previous Balance, and Current Balance fields. Save each query.
Instructions Part 3: Elizabeth needs to update some parent and child information. Create a split form for the Parent table. Filter the form to locate Parent ID P-131 and change their address to 1010 Florissant Rd, Lincolnville, 02923. Save the form as Parent Split Form.
