Part 1 – Microsoft Access 2019

Use Access to create a database to store and retrieve Manufacturer Contact and Inventory information for Rio Salado Boat and Marine dealership.

  1. Create a new blank Access database.
  2. Save the file as BoatDatabase_MEID.accdb. Be sure to replace “MEID” in the filename with your actual MEID.

Structure of the Database 

Read the requirements for the database below and understand how the database should work before you create the design. Remember to follow the best practices presented in TestOut and the online lesson content for creating professional Access databases.

Create the Tables 

You will create new tables that contain information about the Rio Salado Boat and Marine Dealership’s manufacturers and inventory. When creating fields for your tables, it is important to break down your data into the smallest chunks you can (fine data granularity) to make it easier to extract data from the database later. You will also need to join the tables on common fields later in the project. For this project, assume a manufacturer can supply the boat dealership with multiple types of boats for the dealership’s inventory.

NOTE: Remember to assign the most appropriate data type to each of the fields and that one of the fields in each of your tables must be set as the Primary Key. You do not need to enter data records into your tables at this time; you will create a form later in this project for data entry.

Manufacturer Contact Table

Create a new table named Manufacturer Contact Table. At a minimum, your table should include the following fields:

  • Manufacturer ID
  • Manufacturer (e.g., Bayliner)
  • Manufacturer Address
  • Sales Representative Name
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address

Inventory Table

Create a new table named Inventory Table. At a minimum, your table should include the following fields:

  • Inventory ID
  • Manufacturer ID
  • Boat Type (e.g., Sailboat)
  • Model Number
  • Dealer Cost
  • MSRP (i.e., Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price)
  • Quantity in Inventory

Establish Table Relationships

Once the design of the tables has been completed, the next step is to establish relationships between the tables:

  1. Join the Manufacturer Contact Table with the Inventory Table on common fields.
  2. Enforce referential integrity.

Create a Form

Once the tables have been designed and the relationships have been established, it is time to enter data. Remember that each field of each record will need to include data. You will use one form to enter and edit data in the two tables.

  1. Create one form named Manufacturer Form that can be used to enter data into both tables.
  2. Use the form to enter a minimum of four manufacturers. Include your name in one of the records as a Sales Representative for one of the manufacturers.
  3. Use the form to enter at least two different boat types for each manufacturer.

Create the Queries

The ability to extract data from one or more tables is one of the most important functions provided by a database. You will now design, save, and run queries to retrieve specific information from the two tables.

Inventory Query

  1. Create a query named Inventory Query that will SUM the Quantity in Inventory by each Manufacturer.
  2. Save and run the query.

Sales Rep Query

  • Create a query named Sales Rep Query that will show the Manufacturers and Sales Representatives from the Manufacturer Contact Table and all the fields from the Inventory Table.
  • The query must also sort ascending the data by Sales Representative Last Name.
  • Save and run the query.

Create a Report

Reports are used to generate printouts from the tables or queries in a database.

  1. Create a report named Inventory Report that lists the items in inventory.
  2. Include the following fields in the report:
    1. Manufacturer
    2. Boat Type
    3. Model Number
    4. MSRP
    5. Quantity in Inventory
  3. Group the report by Manufacturer.
  4. Format the report in Landscape Orientation so that it fits on one page and all of the fields are fully legible.
  5. After finishing the Report Wizard, remove the Alternate Row Color from the report.
  6. Add a Shape Fill color of your choice, other than the Office Default, to the Manufacturer rows.

Required Objects

After creating your database, the BoatDatabase_MEID.accdb file should contain the following required objects:

  • Tables
    • Inventory Table
    • Manufacturer Contact Table
  • Relationship
    • One-To-Many Relationship Type
  • Form
  • Queries
    • Inventory Query
    • Sales Rep Query
  • Report

Save and close your BoatDatabase_MEID.accdb file.

Part 2 – Microsoft Excel 2019

Use Excel to create a workbook containing three worksheets. The Excel workbook will include Rio Salado Boat and Marine contact information, manufacturer and inventory information, and financing information which will also be visually depicted in a chart.

  1. Create a new blank Excel workbook.
