Module 14 Assignment: Modify Access Database

In the previous module’s assignment, you created the beginning of a database. In this assignment you’ll work with an existing database with business card information and use the skills you have learned in this module.

To complete this assignment, download the Access file here. Follow the directions, then submit your assignment. If you get stuck on a step, review this module and ask your classmates for help in the discussion forum.

  1. Open the database and save the new Module 13 assignment file to the Rowan folder on your desktop as BA132_LastName_BusinessCardDB.accdb, replacing “LastName” with your own last name. (Example: BA132_Hywater_Memo) It is a good idea to save your work periodically.
