Office 2013 – myitlab:grader – Instructions Exploring Capstone Transfer Student Registration
Project Description:
You were recently hired by your local college to help with registering all transfer students. The
college’s Transfer Counseling Department is a one-stop location for transfer students to come with
questions. They have been working with Excel spreadsheets generated by the Information
Technology department, but they are hoping to do more with an Access database. They have had a
number of problems, including employees putting information in the wrong fields, putting
information in the wrong format, and creating incorrect formulas. They are also hoping for more
consistent ways of finding information, as well as being able to generate reports. Your tasks include
importing an existing Excel worksheet as a table into your Access database; modifying the table;
creating a relationship between two tables; creating queries with calculated fields, functions, and
totals; creating a form for input; and creating a report.
For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
Step Points
Possible Instructions 1 Start Access. Open the downloaded Access file named
exploring_acap_grader_h1_College. 0 2 Import the exploring_acap_grader_h1_Transfer.xlsx Excel workbook into a table
named Transfer Schools. While importing the data, choose StudentID as the
primary key field. Ensure StudentID has a data type of Short Text. Change the
StudentID field size to 10 and remove the @ symbol from the StudentID format
property. Change the AdmittingSchool field size to 75. Change the RegistrationFee
and TuitionDue fields to have 0 decimal places. 9 3 Switch to Datasheet View and apply Best Fit to all columns. Sort the table on the
CreditsTransferred field in ascending order, then save and close the table. 4 4 Create a one-to-one relationship between the StudentID fields in the Transfer
Students (primary) and Transfer Schools (related) tables. Enforce referential
integrity between the two tables. Save the changes and close the Relationships
window. 8 5 Open the Transfer Students Data Entry form. Change the major for Cornelius
Kavanaugh to Elementary Education and close the form. 4 6 Create a new query using Design view. From the Transfer Students table, add the
FirstName, LastName, Major, Class, and GPA fields, in that order. From the Transfer
Schools table, add the AdmissionDate, TuitionDue, CreditsEarned, and
CreditsTransferred fields, in that order. Save the query as Transfer Credits. Set
the criteria in the AdmissionDate field to 8/1/2015. Run the query. Enter the
TuitionDue for Diana Sullivan to $1500 and the GPA for Audrey Owen as 3.51.
Save the query. 7 Switch to Design view and save the Transfer Credits query as Transfer Credit
Calculations. Remove the criteria from the AdmissionDate field. Create a
calculated field in the first empty cell of the query named LostCredits that
subtracts CreditsTransferred from CreditsEarned. Updated: 08/23/2013 1 10 8 EXP_ACC_CAPSTONE1_Instructions.docx Office 2013 – myitlab:grader – Instructions Exploring Capstone Step Instructions Points
Possible 8 Create another calculated field named TuitionPayments that determines tuition
paid in three installments. Using the Pmt function, replace the rate argument with
0.025/3, the num_periods argument with 3, and the present_value argument with
the TuitionDue. Use 0 for the future_value and type arguments. Ensure the
payment appears as a positive number. Format the field as Currency. 8 9 Create another calculated field named DueDate after TuitionPayments that
calculates the due date by adding 30 to the AdmissionDate. Run the query. Add a
total row to the query. Average the GPA column and sum the LostCredits column.
Save and close the query. 8 10 11 12 13 Create a new query using Design View. From the Transfer Schools table, add the
AdmittingSchool, StudentID, CreditsEarned, CreditsTransferred, and TuitionDue
fields. Sort the query by AdmittingSchool in ascending order. Display the Total row
and group by AdmittingSchool. Show the count of StudentID, the average
CreditsEarned and CreditsTransferred, and the sum of TuitionDue.
Format both average fields as Standard. Change the caption for the StudentID field
to NumStudents, the caption for the CreditsEarned average to
AvgCreditsEarned, the caption for the CreditsTransferred average to
AvgCreditsTransferred, and the caption for TuitionDue to TotalTuition. Run the
query. Apply Best Fit to all columns. Save the query as Transfer Summary and
close it.
Create a Split Form using the Transfer Schools table as the source. Change the
height of the AdmittingSchool field to 0.25". Remove the layout. Adjust the width
of the StudentID field to 0.5903", the AdmittingSchool field to 3.05", the
AdmissionDate field to 0.8", the CreditsEarned and CreditsTransferred fields to
0.25", the RegistrationFee field to 0.425", and the TuitionDue field to 0.8".
Change the CreditsTransferred label's Top property to 1.4167" and its Left property
to 2.25". Change the CreditsTransferred field's Top property to 1.4167" and its
Left property to 4". Change the format of the TuitionDue field so the font is 18 and
the font color is Red. Change the fill color of the StudentID field to be Yellow. Save
the form as Transfer Schools Form and close it. 11 6 8 5 14 Create a report using the Report Wizard. Add the Class, FirstName, LastName,
Major, GPA, and LostCredits fields from the Transfer Credit Calculations query. Do
not add any grouping or sorting. Ensure the report is in Landscape orientation.
Save the report as Transfer Students Report and view it in Layout view. 5 15 Apply the Wisp theme to only the report. Group the report by the Class field. Sort
the records within each group by LastName and then by FirstName, both in
ascending order. Change the font size of the Class field to 16. Save and close the
report. 6 16 Close all database objects. Close the database and then exit Access. Submit the
database as directed. 0 Total Points Updated: 08/23/2013 2 100 EXP_ACC_CAPSTONE1_Instructions.docx
