GO19_AC_CH02_GRADER_2E_HW – Biology Supplies 1.1

 

Project Description:

In this project, you will use a database to answer questions about biology laboratory supplies at a college. You will open and save an existing database, create a relationship between two tables, sort records in a table, create queries in Design view, create queries from existing queries, sort query results, and specify criteria in a query.

 

Start Access. Open the downloaded   file named Student_Access_2E_Biology_Supplies.accdb, and enable the content.

 

Using   Vendor ID as the common field, create a one-to-many relationship between the   2E Vendors table and the 2E Biology Lab Supplies table. Enforce referential   integrity and enable both cascade options.

 

Create   a relationship report with normal margins. Save it as 2E Relationships Close all open objects.

 

In   the last record of the 2E Vendors table, change the data in the Vendor ID field   from V-100 to V-001, save and then close the table. (The   related records in the 2E Biology Lab Supplies table will automatically   update.)

 

Open   your 2E Biology Lab Supplies table. Sort the records first in Descending   order by Price Per Item and then in Ascending order by Category. Close the   table, saving changes to the table.

 

Create   a query in Query Design view based on the 2E Biology Lab Supplies table to   answer the question: What is the item   ID, item name, room, location, and quantity in stock for all of the items,   sorted in ascending order by the Room field and the Location field?   Display the fields in the order listed in the question. Save the query as 2E Items by Room Query. Close the query.

 

Copy   the 2E Items by Room Query to create a new query with the name 2E Item Categories Query. Redesign the query to answer the   question: What is the item ID, item   name, category, vendor ID, and quantity in stock for all items, sorted in   ascending order by the Category field and the Vendor ID field? Display   only the fields necessary to answer the question and in the order listed in   the question. Be sure that the fields are sorted in the correct order in   Design view, so that the results display the categories in ascending order,   then the Vendor IDs within each category in ascending order. Close the query,   saving the design changes.

 

Copy   the 2E Items by Room Query to create a new query with the name 2E Supplies Sort Query. Redesign the query to answer the   question: What is the item name,   category, price per item, and quantity in stock for all supplies, sorted in   ascending order by the Category field and then in descending order by the   Price Per Item field? Display only the fields necessary to answer the question   and in the order listed in the question. Close the query, saving the design   changes.

 

Copy   the 2E Supplies Sort Query to create a new query with the name 2E Kits Query. Redesign the query to answer the   question: What is item name, category,   price per item, quantity in stock, and vendor ID for all items that have a   category of kits, sorted in ascending order by the Item Name field? Do   not display the Category field in the query results, and display the rest of   the fields in the order listed in the question. Run the query; six records   match the criteria. Close the query, saving the design changes

 

Create   a query in Query Design view based on the 2E Vendors table to answer the   question: What is the vendor ID, vendor   name, and phone number where the phone number is blank, sorted in ascending   order by the Vendor Name field? Display the fields in the order listed in   the question. Run the query; two records match the criteria. Save the query   as 2E Missing Phone Query. Close the query.

 

Be   sure that all database objects are closed, open the Navigation Pane, and then   close Access. Submit the Student_Access_2E_Biology_Supplies.accdb   database as directed.
