Lab3 Guidelines PRELAB FOR LAB03 I hope that the initial start of the prelab from Lab02 helped everyone. I am trying harder so that I can help you guys more with the prelab. This time the lab is based on database and is mainly concentrated on the use of Microsoft Access. Some of you might be already familiar with the software and may even be an expert in it. This is an easy one and if you workout everything well you can get done in less than an hour. Well first of all for those who have no idea what Microsoft Access is, here is an introduction: MS Access is a relational database management system i.e. is a system that stores and retrieves information from database. Software developers and data architects use Access to develop application software and power users can use it to make some simple applications. Important Tutorial I would like everyone to just go through. Would not take more than 10-15 minutes. Well there is this tutorial website which will help you with the complete basics of Microsoft Access. There are six parts to the tutorial which gives you a complete overview of how to: 1. Create a new Database. 2. Create Tables. ( Table are the ones which store data within the database ) 3. Create Records. ( Records are the data that you enter inside the database ) 4. Create Forms. ( Forms are the ones which makes it easier to put data inside the database ) 5. Create Queries. ( Queries helps to pull out a specific data that you want ) 6. Create Reports. ( Reports puts data into an easily readable format ) This tutorial uses graphical interface to explain each an every step smoothly and help one to learn the complete basics of Microsoft Access. Please look at all the options before coming to lab or else you can go through them in the lab too. Also it would just take 10-15 minutes to understand all the six options. It is not at all hard.
