GO16_AC_CH01_GRADER_1G_HW – College Construction Projects and Events
In this project, you will create database objects to track the construction projects and the events related to the projects at a college. You will create a table and import data from Excel to create a second table. You will use a database template to enter data into the Events table. You will create a simple query, a form, and a report.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
Start Access. Open the downloaded file named go_a01_grader_h3_Construction.accdb, enable the content, and then close the Event List multiple-items form that automatically opened. Open the Navigation Pane.
In Datasheet view, create a new table. Beginning in the second column of the table and using the data type of Short Text, create the Building Project, Site, and Contractor fields (in that order). In the fifth column, using the Currency data type, create the Budget Amount field.
Change the data type of the ID field to Short Text, rename the ID field to Project ID.
