TOPIC QUESTION: Per our textbook, Access, a relational database application, is the most widely used PC-based database management system (DBMS) software for both personal and business users. Like other database systems, the structure of the database file is of the utmost importance. For this exercise, you must demonstrate your understanding of the Access database file by describing how you would begin to create a database file with one of its tables. (NO templates.) Your example may be a personal or business one.

First describe your example by::

  1. Naming the database file
  2. Naming only 1 of the important tables in the database file
  3. Providing a detailed list of field names needed in the named table’s records. No generalizations.
  4. No Reports or Forms needed

(An example of a personal Access database might be one used for a wedding or home inventory or collection.)

Why will your Access database example be more useful than using workbooks in Excel?

Office Talk Participation and Grading Criteria

  1. Topic Question Response: Thoroughly respond to the question posted above. A thorough response is a minimum of 150+ words answering the question using your perception and understanding of the classwork for the week.
  2. Responses to Others: After your initial response, post at minimum of 2 replies to other postings – either by another student or the Instructor. Be sure to reply to at least two different posts. These postings should be substantive, contain 75+ words, and contribute to the discussion. Indicate whether you agree, disagree, or can offer a different perspective on the other student’s perspective, or answer any questions that are asked.
  3. Spelling & Grammar: All postings and responses must use business writing style and etiquette. Proper grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation are required. Remember, in an academic or professional environment, “text-messaging” writing is not acceptable.
  4. Short trivial responses, the use of slang, abbreviations, and acronyms will be penalized. For example, “Yeah, you’re right! I agree with you because what you said is so true” is not a substantive response to contribute to the conversation.
  5. You must post on at least three separate days.
  6. You are encouraged to research the topic using the Internet to identify sources to support your response and posting. Be sure to include the URL (Web address) and indicate it as the source of your supporting documentation. No copying and pasting is ever allowed!
  7. You may want to type your postings in Word, to check for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Once you have completed them, copy and paste the text into the discussion board window.

Note: Points may be deducted at the discretion of the instructor for any of the following but not limited to:

  1. Quality of the postings; responses do not contribute to the conversation, are too short/trivial, and/or do not answer the posted questions.
  2. Postings were completed on the same day.
  3. Use of slang, “text-messaging speak”, poor grammar, incorrect spelling, inaccurate punctuation, and poor sentence structure.
