GNVQ intermediate ict unit 2 database

Extracts from this document...


Database Report User Needs I am going to create a database for a cinema organiser/manager to help them keep on task with the cinema club that the students go to, an up to date with their members. At the moment the data is held on a paper based document, this can cause problems because paper can easily be lost or damaged and back-ups are some times impossible or hard to deal with because to copy all the information out again will take a long time. My database will be electronic, which means I can save changes and make back-up copies of the data easily. My database will allow them to do searches and queries to find data. The database is going to include a list of names, genders, addresses and telephone files. This database will be professional, reliable and easy to use; particularly if the owner does not know the necessary ICT skills. ...read more.


After opening the design view the blank design form can be typed into so that you can create your own field names. Data types and field lengths. Relationships in my database To make the relationship database work I had to form relationship between the two tables by clicking on the relationship icon and dragged one key field to another to create it (shown below on the left of the screen shot). Because one school can have many pupils I chose a many to one relationship, between my tables. On the right hand side of the screen shot shows the relationship editing window which shows that I have created a one-to-many relationship which means one school in the schools table will relate to many schools in the card holders table. How I entered data into the database When entering data you should not enter data straight into the tables particular if you want someone to enter data for you. ...read more.


You can choose the data source, the style of the report, the layout, the fields you want to include and how to sort the report. I created two reports from my two queries. In the first one I chose one style for the report and in the second I chose a different one to look at the more suitable style. The two reports are shown below. One is landscape to get all the data in (even then I had to amend the formatting in design view because the first and last fields did not fit on the paper). The bottom one is much neater and professional looking and has fewer fields so that it can fit in a portrait orientation. Backing Up You need to back up your data regularly in case there is system rash or other data loss of some kind. Backing up ensure that you have another copy that you can refer to if you lose the original copy. ?? ?? ?? ?? Unit 2- Handling information 1 Jermaine Carthy/Ernest Bevin collage ...read more.
