Text, Number, and Currency) if these changes were not made my data would have given false data. These were very easy to do as I simply had to use my instinct to know what field size and field types were accurate. Some of my fields didn?t really have to have a certain field size but I chose to put one in as for the field types it was advised for me to put them in as my data would have been entered incorrectly. It is easy to extract useful information from my database because you can easily read the information and the field are named accurately.

you how well the sales are doing and help you see who are buying what products and give them appropriate deals related to the products they buy. It also makes the company more aware of their customers. How would you improve your database Assignment Strengths Weaknesses A Evaluating my work was strength for me. For giving good and bad features. I didn?t know what a transactional website was when I started this assignment. B I knew how to create a flow diagram and enter the appropriate information. I had trouble with doing more advanced diagrams which lowered my marks. C I knew what some of the threats were and how to prevent them. I didn?t know anything about legislations so I had to do a bit of research. D Creating the database was my strength in this assignment. Graphs and queries were my weakness because I wasn?t too sure on how to create them. To improve my database I could do more research on how a database works and also analyse my imported data properly. I could improve on my design in the database assignment also adding more detail to my work can improve my work as a whole. I do not think that there ar4e any other areas that I can improve on. I think that the work I have currently done is done to the best of my abilities. If there were other bits that I have not noticed that need improving I will improve them. ...read more.
