ACIS 1504 - Database Homework Instructions Querying a Database Overview The purpose of this homework assignment is to demonstrate your mastery of database queries. In this assignment, you will produce several lists for a student organization. You do not have to use real data, but make your data reasonable. If you need help with this assignment, please contact your instructor or one of the tutors at the Center for Academic Enrichment and Excellence. You may use the textbook or Access help. (See pages Office 14 and 15.) All page references in this file refer to Illustrated Series Microsoft Office Access 2007. You must use Access to complete this assignment. You may be able to complete the entire assignment in an older version of Access. If you do not have access to Microsoft Access, you can find the application and WebDrive installed on computers in Pamplin 2010 and other labs on campus. Detailed Instructions To receive full credit for this homework assignment, every aspect of each query must be completed in Design View . Don’t use filters. You should comply with the following requirements: 1. I have started the database for you. The file on the class website named Database Homework Datafile.accdb contains the empty tables necessary to complete this assignment. Your first step is to download the file I have created. Download Database Homework Datafile.accdb from the class website by right-clicking on the filename and selecting Save Target As. 2. Next, change the name of the database file to your username. For example, my email address is lacoste@vt.edu so I would name the file lacoste.accdb. You cannot do this in Access because the file must be closed. You can do this in Computer (Vista) or My Computer (Windows XP). Locate the file; it will be stored where ever you saved it in the previous step. Right-click the filename and select rename.
