Additional Project Pointers/Info for your Database Project Read these steps BEFORE starting your project! 1. Don’t jump in and immediately start populating your tables with data. (Note: you should be through at least the chapter 2 hands-on labs before attempting any part of this project.) The easiest approach is the following: a. Construct your tables. Remember to include the correct field property info as listed. b. Build your data entry forms. When constructing your lookup boxes, be sure to display meaningful information to the user (i.e. Customer Name and not CustomerID) but store the correct value for the foreign key information. c. Create your relationships. d. Input your data via your forms. This allows you to utilize your foreign key lookup boxes for fields such as Speaker information. The benefits of this method are reduced data entry and more reliable data integrity. It will be easier if you input data your data for your Speaker table then your other table info.

    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.
