Your boss asked you to prepare a schedule for each speaker for the national conference being hosted next year on your campus. She wants to mail the schedules to the speakers so that they can provide feedback on the schedule prior to its publication. You assure her that you can accomplish this task with Access.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
1Start Access. Open the file named exploring_a04_grader_h1.accdb. Save the database as exploring_a04_grader_h1_LastFirst.0
2Select the Speakers table as the record source for a form. Use the Form tool to create a new stacked form.
Hint: It is NOT asking you to use the Form Wizard, nor use Form Design, nor create a blank form.
153Change the title to Enter/Edit Speakers. Reduce the width of the text box controls to approximately half of their original size.
Hint: Do not confuse the name of the report (i.e., Edit Speakers) with the text displayed within the title text box (i.e., “Enter/Edit Speakers”). You are NOT being asked to change the name of the report.
4Delete the Sessions subform. View the form and data in Form view. Sort the records by LastName in Ascending order. Save the form as Edit Speakers. Close the form.5
5Open the Room Information form in Layout view. The form does not have a Form Layout. Select all controls and apply the Stacked Layout. Save and close the form.10
6Select the Speaker and Room Schedule query as the record source for a report. Activate the Report Wizard and use the following options as you go through the Wizard.
Select all of the available fields for the report. View the data by Speakers. Verify that LastName and FirstName will provide grouping levels. Use Date as the primary sort field, in Ascending order.
Accept the Stepped and Portrait options. Save the report as Speaker Schedule.
7Switch to Layout view and apply the Organic theme to only this report. Save and close the report.5
8Open the Speaker and Room Schedule query in Design view. Add the StartingTime field in the Sessions table to the design grid, after the Date field. Run the query. Save and close the query.10
9Click the Speaker and Room Schedule query. Start the Report Wizard again and use the following options. Select all of the available fields for the report. View the data by Speakers.
Use the LastName, FirstName fields as the primary grouping level. Use Date as the primary sort field, in Ascending order. Use StartingTime as the secondary sort field in Ascending order.
