EX16_AC_CH05_GRADER_ML2_HW - Northwind Traders
You are the office manager of the Northwind Traders specialty food wholesaler. You will modify the company’s Access database to help produce more reliable information. You create a lookup customers form in which data cannot be modified by users. You also create queries and reports to validate data.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
Start Access. Open the file named exploring_a05_grader_h5_Traders.accdb.
Open the Employees table in Design view. Add a phone number input mask to the HomePhone field using the Input Mask Wizard.
Change the TitleOfCourtesy field to be a lookup field. Find values in the TitleOfCourtesy table. Sort by the TitleOfCourtesy field. Accept the default name. Save and close the table, ignoring the warning that data that may be lost.
Open the TitleOfCourtesy table in Datasheet view. Add the titles Sr., Sra., and Srta. on separate lines, as the company has hired a Spanish-speaking representative and may hire more. Save and close the table.
Open the Employees table in Datasheet view. Scroll to record 10 for Claudia Mendiola. Change her TitleOfCourtesy to Srta. by selecting it from the menu. Close the table.
Open the Customers table in Design view. Add an input mask to the CustomerID field so the user must enter five nonnumeric characters, and ensure the characters are converted to uppercase.
Switch to Datasheet view. Locate the record for the company with the name Around the Horn. Change the name of the company to London Specialties. Attempt to change the CustomerID to 99999. If your input mask is working correctly, you will not be able to type it. Change the CustomerID for London Specialties to LONSP. Close the table.
Create a copy of the Shipments By Vendor query. Name the query Shipments By Vendor and Year. Open the query in Design view. Add a new field before Company Name. Extract the four-digit year from the ShippedDate field using a function and ensure the Total row is set to Group By. Name the column Year.
Add a parameter to the Year column so the user can type a year at run time and see one year’s results at a time. The user should be prompted with the text Enter Year. Save and close the query.
Open the Revenue query in Design view. Create a new field named Net that calculates the difference between Revenue and TotalCost. Round the Net field to the nearest dollar.
Add a new field to the Revenue query that displays Profit when the value of the Net field is greater than zero and Loss when it is less than or equal to zero. Name the field ProfitOrLoss. Run the query and ensure orders with negative Net fields display Loss. Save and close the query.
Save the database. Close the database, and then exit Access. Submit the database as directed.
