For the Week 3 Microsoft Access Module 1 Lab Assignment, you will develop a database for the gift shop at your local science museum. Use skills/techniques/concepts learned in the Microsoft Access Module 1. HINT: The finished Lab Assignment should include: 2 tables, 1 query, 1 form, and 1 report.

Problem: The Milledgeville, Georgia, science museum operates a gift shop that sells science-related products. The gift shop purchases the products from vendors that deal in science-related games, toys, and other merchandise. Currently, the information about the items and the vendors is stored in two tables. You are to create a database that will store the item and vendor information.

Perform the following tasks:

  1. Create a new blank database in which to store all data for the gift shop and save the database as LastnameFirstnameAccessLab1.accdb
  2. Import the Vendor table AND the Item table from the database (Module 1 Lab Assignment.accdb) into the new blank database you created in Step 1.
  3. Open the Vendor table.
    • Change the field size for the Vendor Code field to 2
    • Change the field size for the Vendor Name field to 25
    • Change the field size for the Telephone Number field to 12
    • Assign the caption VC to the Vendor Code field
    • Resize the columns to best fit the data
    • Save the changes to the table and close the table
  4. Open the Item table.
    • Change the field size for the Vendor Code field to 2
    • Change the field size for the Item Number field to 4
    • Change the field size for the Description field to 28
    • Add the caption Wholesale for the Wholesale Cost field, the caption Retail for the Retail Price field, and the caption VC for the vendor code
    • The On Hand field should be an Integer field
    • Resize the columns to best fit the data
    • Save the changes to the table and close the table
  5. Create a query for the Item table. Include the Item Number, Description, Wholesale Cost,
    Retail Price, and Vendor Code. Save the query as Item Query.
  6. Create a form for the Item table. Save the form as Item.
  7. Create a report for the Item table. Include the Item Number, Description, On Hand, and Wholesale Price. Save the report as Item Status Report.
  8. Change the telephone number for Asherton Wholesalers to 999-999-9999.
  9. Update the author (use your name) and title (use ‘Week 3 Microsoft Access Module 1 Lab Assignment’) in the document properties.
