Exp19_Access_Ch2_Cap – Metropolitan Zoo 1.0

Project Description:

The Metropolitan Zoo tracks its animal data in Excel. The organization decides to use a database to organize the data about the animals, their trainers, and the animal exhibits. In this project, you will open an existing database and create a new table. You will import an Excel file containing information about the animals, and query the database to determine which animals need a checkup. You will also create a query to obtain a listing of the animals in each exhibit.

Import   the downloaded Zoo.xlsx workbook as   a new table in the current database. Using the Import Spreadsheet Wizard,   specify that the first row contains column headings, set the AnimalID field to be indexed with no   duplicates, and set the AnimalID field   as the primary key. Import the table with the name Animals and do not save the import steps.

View the Animals table in Design view,   and change the field size for the AnimalID field to Long Integer. Change the field sizes for the ExhibitID and   TrainerID fields to Long Integer.   Save the table. Click Yes in the   dialog box indicating that some data may be lost. Close the table.

Begin   establishing relationships in the database by adding the Animals, Exhibits, and   Trainers tables to the   Relationships window. Close the Show Table dialog box. Resize the field lists   so that all fields display. Create a one-to-many relationship between the ExhibitID field in the Exhibits table   and the ExhibitID field in the   Animals table, enforcing Referential Integrity. Select the option to cascade   update the related fields.

Create   a query using the Simple Query Wizard.   From the Animals table, add the AnimalID,   AnimalType, and DateOfLastCheckup fields (in that   order). Ensure the query is a Detail query. Name the query Checkup List and finish the wizard.

10

10

View the query in Design view, and then   set the criteria for the DateOfLastCheckup field so that only animals whose   last checkup was before 1/1/2022   are displayed.

11

Sort   the query in ascending order by the DateOfLastCheckup field. Save the query.   Run the query, and then close the query.

Create a new query in Design view. Add   the Animals, Exhibits, and Trainers   tables to the query design window. Add the following fields to the query (in   this order):
 

AnimalType

Origin
  ExhibitName
  FirstName
  LastName
  Position

Copy the Americas Exhibit query in the Navigation Pane and paste it with   the name Asian Exhibit.   Modify the query in Design view to replace The Americas with Asia.   Run the query, save the query, and close the query.
