Introduction

Introduction William Smith is the owner of a small corner shop in Wakefield. He has little experience with computers - He can use Microsoft Word to type up an article, and he can play games as well. He once ran the London Marathon dressed as Tony the Tiger. His main hobby is visiting restaurants with his friends. William also has a rare condition - basically he has a bad short-term memory. His favourite band is 'The Pet Shop Boys'. Mr. Smith has many friends, and enjoys taking his friends out to many restaurants - It's kind of a hobby among then. However, some of his friends don't like certain foods, some are allergic to certain foods, some don't earn enough money to be able to afford certain restaurants, and they all work different hours, therefore Mr. Smith has problems in deciding who would be most appropriate to take. He also needs the phone numbers and addresses of his friends so he can easily get in touch with them. There are also many, many restaurants in the Wakefield & Leeds vicinity, and William cannot keep track of which type of food each restaurant specifies in. ...read more.

Conclusion

As I will be developing this database on different computers (At school, and at home), Access will be ideal. The final advantage that access has, is that it is easy to make a backup of a database - Simply copy the file, because there is, after all, only one file that holds the entire database, instead of several. By no means is Access perfect though - It has many disadvantages. For a start, it is limited to small databases, because Access was designed to efficiently manage relatively small numbers of database records. The file size limit is 2gb, but I don't think the database that Mr. Smith will be using will ever reach that capacity. Also, because the database is stored in only one file, this means that it can be slow at bringing up results when many people are accessing it at the same time, via a network for example. Again, this won't be a problem for Mr. Smith, as he will be the only user. Access is definitely the relational database management system to use. How will the data be sorted????
