In this project, you will apply skills you practiced from the Objectives in Access Chapters 1 through 3. You will create a database for Frank Osei, Vice President of Finance, that contains inventory and supplier information. In addition, you will create queries that answer specific questions relating to the inventory items and suppliers, forms for entering and updating information, and reports.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
Start Access. Download, open, and save the database namedgo_acc_grader_capstone_Inventory_Suppliers.accdb.
Open the Cap1 Inventory table in Design View. Rename the ID field to Item ID and change the Data Type to Short Text. Continue adding the following fields as Short Text except for Retail Price, which should have a Currency Data Type:Item NameRetail PriceCategorySportSupplier ID
Switch to Datasheet view. Enter the following two records into Cap1 Inventory:Item ID: 106555Item Name: SnowboardRetail Price: 256.99Category: EquipmentSport: SkiingSupplier ID: SUPP-06Item ID: 106556Item Name: Wool SocksRetail Price: 12.59Category: Socks and GlovesSport: SkiingSupplier ID: SUPP-04
Close the table. Append a copy of the records from the downloaded aCap1_Inventory workbook to the Cap1 Inventory table. Accept all defaults in the wizard and do not save the Import steps. Open the table, verify there are 25 records, and apply Best Fit to all fields. Save and close the table.
Import the source data from the downloadedaCap1_Suppliers workbook into a new table in the current database. In the wizard, click the First Row Contains Column Headings option and set the primary key to Supplier ID. Name the table Cap1 Suppliers.
Open the Cap1 Suppliers table in Design view. Delete the Fax Number field and save the table. Switch to Datasheet view and apply Best Fit to all of the fields. Save and close the table.
On the Navigation Pane, group the objects by Tables and Related Views.
Create a relationship between the two tables in the database using Supplier ID as the common field. Enforce Referential Integrity and select both Cascade options. One supplier can supply many inventory items.
Create a relationship report. Save the report withRelationships as the name. Close the Relationships window.
Create a query in Design view, using your Cap1 Inventory table to answer the question What is the item name (in alphabetical order), retail price, and category for the sport of hiking? Add the fields in that order. Do not display the Sport field in the query results. Run the query, save it as Cap1 Hiking Query, then close the query. Seven records match the criteria.
