Summary

Joining Tables and Training Cost Management

To accomplish analysis exercise 1 and 2, we have to create tables, query and reports in Microsoft Access. In the Exercises, we are asked to create tables and declare the field types. We have to create Course ID and Schedule ID as a primary key. In the joining table problem, we have to create a query that lists each course name and its cost per day of training, cost per students for each class. Likewise, in the training cost management problem, we have to create number of people who have registered for each scheduled class.

The analysis exercise wants to prepare table for pricing, course, course, and class roster. In the table required field should be included like primary key, Boolean type, date, text. After that prepare a query that list each course name and its cost per day of training and cost per student for each class. For that we have to calculate cost per day; dividing price per day by capacity. After the calculating find the answers for number 2c and 2d.
