    I'm doing the design section of my coursework right now. Could anybody tell me what the name of that kind of diagram where you structure different parts of a program in the way that they are linked?

    In the design section you will need two lots of data flow diagrams:
    1) level 0 data flow diagram
    2) level 1 data flow diagram (more complicated/greater depth)

    As mentioned above you will also need an Entity Relationship diagram which should be produced in a systematic process following normalisation of the current system.

    They are all the diagrams i produced in the design section. In the analysis i produced just flow diagrams of the existing system. Id suggest getting this book to help you do the coursework! it was my bible (assuming you are doing the ICT AQA A level in Access)

    Hmm...thanks for the suggestions but it isn't one of those. It kind of shows how menus are linked...

    However you guys have reminded me to do those other diagrams... :P

    Organisation charts? I did an organisation chart linking which menu would lead to that form and so on... (e.g. main menu has a button that leads to this form).

    Yeah, kinda. I'm sure there was a special name for it though, and it involved more than just menus. Cheers.
