Access Chapter 9 Capstone – Trading Cards



Project Description:

You and your partner Stann Dupp have a small business selling baseball cards online through eBay. As the more computer-savvy partner; you created an Access database with records of the cards you have in stock. As it turns out, Stann was attempting to manage the card inventory and ended up modifying crucial aspects of the database that impact the general operation of the database. You will reverse those changes and create other safeguards to protect from this happening again in the future. The database tables may already be normalized; however, you will examine the tables to verify.


Start   Access. Open the downloaded Access database named Exp19_Access_Ch09_Cap_Trading_Cards.accdb. Grader has   automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename. Save the   file to the location where you are storing your files.


You   will first establish relationships between the Cards, Brands, and Rarity   tables based on the common fields that they share.

  Open the Relationships window. Add the Cards,   Brands, and Rarity tables to the layout.


After   creating a relationship between two tables, you will enforce referential   integrity, which ensures that the relationship will remain intact if/when   data is updated in either table. Furthermore, you will ensure that all   changes to the primary key in your Cards table will be reflected in the foreign   keys that exist in the Rarity table by selecting the Cascade Update Related   Fields option.

  Create a relationship between the Cards   and Rarity tables tables, ensuring   you check the Enforce Referential   Integrity and Cascade Update   Related Fields options for the relationship.


After   also establishing the relationship between the Cards and Brands tables, in   the same manner, you will analyze the database to identify any flaws in the   design as well as suggested low-risk improvements that can be made to your   database.

  Create a relationship between the Cards   and Brands tables, ensuring you   check the Enforce Referential   Integrity and Cascade Update   Related Fields options for the relationship. Save, and close the   Relationships window. Open the Performance   Analyzer dialog box, under All Object Types, click Select All, and then click OK.   Note the idea to relate the Cards table to the others in the database. Close   the Performance Analyzer.


You   will now provide your users with a simple and intuitive way to add and edit   cards by creating a form.

  Create a new form based on the Cards   table using the Form tool. Save   the form as Add or Edit Cards.   Close the form.


Now   that you have the Add or Edit Cards form created, you can add that and the   remaining forms to a Horizontal Tab navigation form. By doing this, you will   create a one-stop-shop for your users to view and edit the trading cards in   the database.

  Create a navigation form based on the Horizontal   Tabs template. Drag the Add or   Edit Cards form to the first tab position.


Drag   the All Player Cards report to the   second tab position.


Drag   the Bowman Cards report to the   third tab position.


Drag   the Donruss Cards report to the   fourth tab position.


Drag   the Fleer Cards report to the   fifth tab position.


Drag   the Topps Cards report to the   sixth tab position.


Switch   to Form view and test the navigation form. Save the navigation form with the   default name and close it.


You   will finalize the interface for your users by hiding the Navigation Pane so   that it is out of their way, and setting the navigation form you created to   open automatically when the database opens. This ensures that the user’s   experience is seamless and straightforward.

  Set the database to hide the Navigation Pane and open the navigation form   when the database opens. Close the database and reopen it observe that the   form opens automatically.


Close   all database objects. Close the database and then exit Access. Submit the   database as directed.
