The Human Resources department has asked you to assist them in updating the database they have been using. They need to create a form that can be used to find information but not change information. They have an existing form that they would like to enhance, and they need to be able to present supervisors with a list of employees who report to them. You will assist them in this task.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
Start Access. Open the file namedexploring_a07_grader_h1_Prices.accdb.
Select the Employees table and use the Form tool to create a new form. Change the title to View Employees. Delete the Orders subform.
Change the Allow Edits, Allow Additions, and Allow Deletions settings to No. View the form and data in Form view. Save the form as View Employees.
Create a new table named Countries. Rename the default ID field to Country, and then change the data type to Short Text. Enter two records, UK and USA (in that order). Close the table.
Open the Update Employees form in Design view. Change the Country field to a Combo Box. Set the Row Source to Countries and the Limit To List property to Yes.
Fix the tab order so the Postal Code field comes immediately before the Country field. Save and close the form.
Open the View Employees form in Design view. Add a new label control in the left-side of the form footer that displays the text Personnel information is considered private and printouts should be shredded after use. Do not include the period. Change the font color to Black, Text 1 and bold the text. Save and close the form.
Create a new report based on the Employees table using the Report Wizard. Select the FirstName, LastName, HireDate, and HomePhone fields. Accept all other default options.
