I did that, only we spelt it 'organisation' - the British way.

the questionnaire must be based on the trainging that the user of the end system has.In addition to this you have to find out the requirements of the computer inorder to create and use the system.

This is the very hard piece of work you need to do. What I can suggest you - here is the link, where you can find several databases, which were created for different companies: http://www.coursework.info

you do not have to make it a real organisation, how does the teacher know or the examining board in that case?

you can do things such as music rentals, library, video rentals, that sort of thing.. you just have to fill the criteria of the coursework.

I must say they do expect real end user testing and you get bonus marks for the manuals. if any one wants help give me a shout. i did it last year and got 95 out 120 from the examning board, 1 mark of an A grade. gutted though my teacher gave me 113 and she is strict, as her marks are generally put up by the board. never mind, it was meant to be ....

i did this for a second year, first year project is generally based on question from a worksheet and preparing a database and few mailmerge etc tasks.

what board are you doing, i did OCR

and what help do you need.. the real end user.. get a friend close by who will test what you make, ie your database if thats what your doing.. you need to create a plan what you wish to do firstky,

normally you can take a business which is on a paper based system and convert their organisation into computer based, say a libaray, video rentals or music rentals is easiest, say a small firm wishes to update its old methods.

Da board im doing is AQA - does dis make a difference? The real end user i have chosen is a person who owns a small company - 'costcutters' in my local area and to help da person attract customers i have introduced the advantage of Customer Loyalty Cards- where certain amount of item the customer buys will lead to customer credit discount or will received discount vouchers. i dont knw how 2 go bout creating functions and formulas dat will enable da user to store personal data enquiry of their customer.

I'm doing Computing, so surprisingly I have to do a database too. Now then, Dbforum is a good place to ask database related questions, both technical and none technical.

When I started mine 2 months ago, I didn't ask that many questions. You basically go into the office and ask them to show you what they have got. Then ask them to show you what the current system can do. Then you ask them to draw up a specification list and during the interview, you have to present something that you think can be improved. If you decide to use Extreme Programming then you don't have to worry to much about the first interview.

Note: I hate Database, why do we have to do design a database as our project? Why can't we just do some other things. Like graphics or something useful.

When it comes to where the money is nothing is more useful that a good database...graphics is for artists, databases are for computer experts.

i did my AS ict last summer and got A for both courseworks, and then A and an E (something went wrong there.....) for the exams.

once you know what to do for your coursework it's actually REALLY REALLY simple to get full marks. all you have to do is follow the specification step by step. and really step by step. just write up everything they ask you too.
i use the heinemann book ict for edexcel and for each coursework task it includes the specification. i think all books have that.....

because i got A for the courseworks, my little exam mess-up (the lovely E) didn't matter that much and i got a B overall.
