I'm finding it really hard to use access as ive never realled used it before.

My project is to make a system for a drving school. I would very much appreciate it if anyone else who is doing a similar system to reply to this thread and i can have a chat wiv u bout it.

Theres some examples of coursework on www.revisecomputing.co.uk or .com try both It's just the write up but you always get more marks for it. I did a stock control system for chem lab at my college! I remember seeing an example of a level cwk for a driving school. If u hv alevel Bs in your college, try looking for A-Level computing by PM Heathcote she also does a A-level coursework book for Access as I assume your probably using it! It's really good!. Look on the inside cover for the publishers site, go to it they have load of physical coursework that you can download and look at. I can't find my copy off hand!

the URL is http://www.payne-gallway.co.uk/student_resources.html

If you can't find your way around it here are links to some files they have on there of things done in Access in 3 versions. I don't know if this helps !? They are all exe files that are self extracting.

Found dead line is just over a month away, and my teach is safe tho he hasn't helped me 1 bit since I joined my college, it's all me but I have great experience in Access, so I could help any of yall.

Oh yeah, I got A in AS Computin last year and that's harder than this so I'm not worried 1 bit about exams either, as I got 54/60 in the mock WITHOUT any revision cos I didn't know we had it.

I am doing A2 coursework, and I am in the design. I am stuck on the macro design. What do I have to write? I have created a table of three columns, macro name, action and arguments. I got this from a booklet I was given. But what goes in the action and arguments column?

There's Database book called Database Projects in Access for Advanced Level, by Julian Mott and Ian Rendell. You can get if from Amazon for about £10. There's a system there based on a driving school which may be of some use to you! Good Luck.
