Mastering Access Project 13L—Lab Administrators In this project, you will apply the skills you practiced from the Objectives in Project 13A. Objectives: 1. Open an Existing Database; 2. Create Table Relationships; 3. Sort Records in a Table; 4. Create a Query in Design View; 5. Create a New Query from an Existing Query; 6. Sort Query Results; 7. Specify Criteria in a Query. In the following Mastering Access project, you will assist Stephanie Cannon, Computing Services Director at the college, in querying the database to answer questions about computer lab administrators and their skill specialties. Your query results will look similar to those shown in Figure 13.64. Project 13L: Lab Administrators | Access 1 Content-Based Assessments (Project 13L–Lab Administrators continues on the next page) 13 Access chapter thirteen For Project 13L, you will need the following file: a13L_Lab_Administrators You will save your database as 13L_Lab_Administrators_Firstname_Lastname Figure 13.64 CH13_student_cd.qxd 10/17/08 7:17 AM Page 1

Mastering Access (Project 13L–Lab Administrators continued) 2 Access | Chapter 13: Sort and Query a Database Content-Based Assessments 1. Navigate to the location where the student files for this textbook are saved. Locate a13L_Lab_Administrators and click one time to select the file. Copy and then Paste the file to your Access Chapter 13 folder. Rename the file as 13L_Lab_ Administrators_Firstname_Lastname and then Start Access. Navigate to your Access Chapter 13 folder, open 13L_Lab_ Administrators , and then Enable this content . 2. Open the Navigation Pane , and then open the database tables. Examine their fields and records to become familiar with the data, Close the tables, and then Close the Navigation Pane . Create a one-to- many relationship between the 13L Lab Administrators table and the 13L Labs table based on the Employee ID field, and then Enforce Referential Integrity ; one Lab Administrator can be responsible for many Labs. Create the Relationship Report and Save it with the default name. Print or submit the report electronically as directed, and then Close all open objects. 3. Open the Navigation Pane , open the 13L Lab Administrators table, and then Close the Navigation Pane . Notice the + signs that indicate the relationships you created. Perform a multiple-field sort on the table as follows: Sort the Last Name field ( innermost sort field) in Ascending order, and then sort the Position field ( outermost sort field) in Descending order. The table is sorted by Position, with Lab Managers listed first, Lab Directors second, and Lab Assistants third, and within each Position, the names are alphabetized by Last Name. After examining the organization of the data, Clear All Sorts , Close the table, and do not save the changes. 4. Create a query in Query Design view, Add the 13L Lab Administrators table to the table area, and then expand the field list. Add fields to the design grid so that your query will answer the question, What are the Employee ID, First Name, and Last Name of each Lab Administrator in alpha-

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
