I am currently a year 13 student in New Zealand studying level 3 DIT. Currently we are working on a database management internal assessment and it would be great to get a bit of information on database design and management so that I can make my own successful and professional database using Microsoft Access 2010. Any feedback would be great or even another email address or contact that would be useful for me to gain some information on this topic.
When developing a plan for a database you create what are the most important factors that you consider before anything else?
When planning your database what things do you find the most important, least important, easiest aspects and the most difficult aspects?
Do you think it is important to develop test databases or use a detailed plan before you develop your final database? If so why?
When developing your final database what area do you undertake first? Why do you undertake this area first?
Which aspect of the database do you enjoy the most, and what areas do you find difficult to do?
What specific functions do you think would be a good idea for me to include onto my database in order to make it as professional as possible.
Is there often times when completing your database design that you need to go back and change?
