Microsoft Access 2010 CHAPTER 5 Multitable Forms Camashaly Design AC 274 – AC 326
Project — Multitable Forms
Camashaly Design uses its database to keep records about clients and business analysts. After using the database for several months, however, Camashaly has found that it needs to maintain additional data on its business analysts. The company wants to identify those business analysts who have a professional certifi cate in business analysis, store the start date of each business analyst in the database, and include notes about each business analyst as well as the business analyst’s picture. Additionally, business analysts now maintain files about potential contacts. These files are separate from the database; some are maintained in Word and others in Excel. Camashaly would like a way to attach these files to the corresponding business analyst’s record in the database. Finally, Camashaly wants to add the Phone Number field to the Business Analyst Table. Users should type only the digits in the telephone number and then have Access format the number appropriately. If the user enters 7195558364, for example, Access will format the number as (719) 555-8364.
After the proposed fields have been added to the database, Camashaly wants users to be able to use a form that incorporates the Client and Business Analyst tables and that includes the newly added fields as well as some of the existing fields. The form also should include the client number, name, amount paid, and current due amount for the clients of each business analyst. Camashaly would like to see multiple clients on the screen at the same time (Figure 5 – 1). The database should allow users to scroll through all the clients of a business analyst and to open any of the attachments concerning the business analyst’s Client Notes. Finally, Camashaly requires queries that use the Certification, Start Date, and Comment fields.
