Relational Database Management Systems Unit 3 Discussion Board Kregg M. Soltow January 20, 2011 American Intercontinental University What guidelines/steps should you follow when you design a relational database? In addition to using the course material, use the Library and Web Resources to find best-practice guidelines. Be sure to cite your sources in APA format. Steps: 1.) Don’t worry about the design of database. Devote all time to understanding the businesses needs and its environment. Accommodate these into the design of the database. (Teory,2005) 2.) Sketch out by hand the data entry forms. 3.) Complete steps 1 and 2 to develop a clear understanding of exactly how the data is to be captured and how it is to be updated. 4.) Develop a primal table used only for capturing data. (Lightstone,2005) 5.) Utilizing the method in step 2, begin to add data into the tables. 6.) Step 5 should be repeated however many times for each different scenario, and then checked for the need to add additional tables or data loads.

    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.
