    I have at least one of all of these on my website for presentational purposes. Methods Used to Create Each Slide First of all I set up a new folder in my user area and created 6 new .htm files. All of the websites are in the standard format, .htm. The title for the home page is Apple and for sub-pages I have used appropriate titles for each website, instead of page1and page2. I also created a folder where I could save all the images to be used on my site, so they could easily be navigated to and kept.

    Evaluation of Software

    Then I selected the fields which I wanted to view on my form and clicked NEXT. I chose the layout and style. I then gave my report a name and then finally clicked finish. If then I chose to change the design of my report I simply clicked on the design button. I thought it was again an effective way to present my data and a very good idea to create a form using the wizard. This is because, as I am not an advanced user, the wizard gave me some guidance.

  6. Creating a Database Coursework

    Also, a Roller Deck is also limited to a number of cards. Whereas, a computerised database can hold more information as it has a large memory system. Also, a Roller Deck cannot provide security for the information it contains. While, a computerised database can be password protected. Therefore, only a selected number of people with the password can access and change the data. As well as, it takes an immense amount of time searching through a Roller Decks for a particular file.

  7. Unit 4 Multimedia -Review for Product 1 KS3 Strategy Presentation

    This presentation is simple, this is effective because it gives straight bullet points, nothing too complicated for the teachers, however there are a few words that could be misunderstood due to the fact that they are not common words used every day, an example for this would be "Dissemination". Images and animations There are no photographs or cliparts in this Powerpoint presentation. The good side for this is that cliparts are not actually suitable for this kind of presentation, adults are not too keen on seeing cliparts, it might be childish for them.

  9. Software used in my created system. To begin with, the one software I must use is an operating system. Every computer needs an operating system

    I used a word processor for the wage slip as the wage slip is a very simple thing and a word processor can do simple things like draw tables. I could've used a DTP package to make the wage slip but that would make things unnecessarily complicated as many of the features available in a DTP package are not needed. A word processor can have tables, images and use mail merge and that's all that's needed. For my logos I used several different pieces of software, depending on the complexity of the logo.

    I thought it would be a good idea to produce a spreadsheet for her that will make her business more organised and make her life easier.

Alternative solution No 1: My first solution is Microsoft Word because I could use a calculator and store the information in tables.

  11. Documentation of a database for a sports centre.

    The computer automatically compares the two versions and tells the user if they're not the same. When network users change their password, they have to type in the new password twice to verify it. An additional process is to test what is on the computer screen against the original document and make sure that they both match. A third technique would be to print out the data which has been entered and then to check the printed copy against the original document, again to see that they both match. Design Table Design The structure of the table includes the name and number of fields, the properties and data types of each field, the Primary key and validation if needed.

    Walcott and Ben find it very difficult to keep up the records, for e.g. who has rented out what, for how long they have rented it for, should they be charged for keeping it for too long etc. due to the fact they are laid-back when a customer comes in to drop the game off they just take the game and tick the box saying returned but they don't realize until it's too late that the game was kept for too long, sometimes they do realize just after the customer has left the shop, and they can't chase after him

  15. Flight Spreadsheet Report. The task we had to complete was to find prices of flights to Belfast from London (with return flight) and compare the prices in a spreadsheet document.

    I also used Internet Explorer in order to research the airlines and find prices. Information Sources Used I found information, including the prices that I used in the second spread sheet, on the airline's websites: Flybe.com, Flybmi.com and Easyjet.com. Below are the screenshots of the websites I used. Results of the Investigation The cheapest airline surveyed, according to my spread sheet, is Easyjet who offer the flights for �2638.9. This is because, as advertised, they offered no cost to the passenger, only the taxes had to be paid. We did not include any group discounts to any airlines as it was not advertised on the website.

I have evidenced this in my evidence file with annotated screenshots in various stages of formation as I produced the work.

    If the database was not backed up and the only copy was on a lap top and this was then stolen or lost, the gymnasts would never receive their medals and may have to compete again, resulting in some very annoyed gymnasts. To ensure the "integrity of data", it would be important to ensure no unauthorised person is able to access the database. The ways of doing this would be * Have strong and secure passwords (not 1,2,3,4,5,6 or "Password")
