#GO19 AC CH01 GRADER 1G_HW – College Construction 1.0

Project Description:

In this project, you will create database objects to track the  construction projects and the events related to the projects at a  college. You will create a table and import data from Excel to create a  second table. You will use a database template to enter data into the  Events table. You will create a simple query, a form, and a report.

Start Access. Open the file Student_Access_1G_College_Construction_HW.accdb downloaded with   this project. Close the Event List multiple-items form that automatically   opened. Open the Navigation Pane.

In   Datasheet view, create a new table. Beginning in the second  column of the   table and using the data type of Short Text, create the Building Project, Site,   and Contractor fields (in that order). In the fifth   column, using the Currency data type, create the Budget Amount   field.

Change   the data type of the ID field to Short Text, rename the ID field to Project ID and change the Field Size to 5

Starting   in the Project ID field, add the following three records to the new table:


Student Center,     3-story

Northeast Campus

RR Construction



Student Center,     2-story

Southeast Campus

RR Construction



Health Professions     Center

Northwest Campus

Marshall Ellis     Construction


Save   the table as 1G Projects, and then close the table.

Append   the records from the downloaded Excel file a01G_Projects.xlsx to the 1G Projects table.

In   the Navigation Pane, organize the objects by Tables and Related  Views. Open   the 1G Projects table (the table has eight records). Close  the Navigation Pane.

Switch   the 1G Projects table to Design view. For the Project ID field, enter a   description of Enter the Project ID   using the format P-### For the Site field, enter a description of Campus Location.   Save the table.

Switch   to Datasheet view, apply Best Fit to all of the fields in the table, save the   table, and then close the table.

Import   the records from the downloaded Excel file   a01G_Contractors.xlsx into the database as a new table named 1G Contractors. Designate the first row as column   headings and the CO ID field as the primary key.

Open   the 1G Contractors table in Datasheet view (the table has four  records).   Apply Best Fit to all of the fields in the table, save the  table, and then   close the table.

   Based on your 1G Projects table, use the Query Wizard to create a  simple   query. Add the Site, Building Project, and Budget Amount fields  (in that   order). Keep the default name of 1G   Projects Query, click Finish to display the query results, and then close   the query.

Based   on your 1G Projects table, use the Form tool to create a form for the table.   Save the form as 1G Project Form, display the form in Form view, and   then close the form.

Based   on your 1G Projects table, use the Report tool to create a  report. Delete the   Budget Amount field from the report. Save the  report as 1G Projects Report.

Sort   the Building Project field in ascending order. Set the width  of the Building   Project, Site, and Contractor fields to 2 inches.  Delete the page number from   the report, save the report, and then  close the report.

Open   the Navigation Pane, open the Event List form, and then close  the Navigation   Pane. In the Event List multiple-items form, enter the  following two records   (the Start Time and End Time data will reformat  automatically):
