Lab 01 Answer Key 1. Name the hardware, software, data, people and procedures that make up the Northwind information system. Answers will vary. The hardware is the stand-alone PC that is running the Access database; you could also include the printer and LAN or cable connections to it. The software is Microsoft Access and the Northwind.mdb file. The data is the tables inside Northwind. People include all users of the system. The procedures include all written and non-written operating procedures plus rules built into the programming. 2. Run the Employee Sales by County report from the Northwind Main Switchboard. Describe how this report could be used by a manager. Answers will vary. This report allows a manager to track sales in total and by country, which can help in strategic analysis of the markets. It also reports which salespersons have exceeded their goal, which can help identify the top performers. 3. How does the Northwind Orders form enforce the procedure that orders cannot be entered for people who are not recorded as customers?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
