You should be able to complete the final project on your own. The 'Lab Manual' will be very helpful if you get stuck. Remember to use ctrl + f to quickly find the information you are looking for. However, if you need assistance from your TA show up to either one of the CMPS 1200 classes or see your TA during office hours. The TAs cannot be expected to answer technical questions via email. The walk-in lab will be open for use 9am-5pm during week 15.

Import these files into your Access Database
Open Access. Create a blank database named final.accdb. Import the tables from above and name them Students, GPA, & Major. The data files you downloaded are comma delimited files (CSV) or tab delimited. The three files represent tables for Students, a table for their major, and a table for their GPA.
Create a query that selects all of the history majors and their GPA.
Now create a report with all of the students in the History department with a GPA greater than or equal to 3.50. You will have the following fields in the given order 'Last', 'First', 'Major', & 'GPA'. Hint: put >= in the GPA Criteria field when in the query design view. Order the table from highest to lowest GPA.
Make the report fit on one page and make it look neat. So shorten up the text boxes put a title, remove the time from the header and reformat the date to mm/dd/yyyy.
Return to your PowerPoint presentation. Insert a new slide. Paste your report on this slide. You are done with slide #4.
Create a form for the 'Students' table using the 'Form Wizard' from the ribbon. Update all of the fields using one form. The form should look like the one below and in that order. TITLE YOUR FORM 'Bakersfield Students Data Update'. Take a screen shot of your form and insert it into slide #5. (See the 'Addendum' below that uses 'Paint' to do the screen capture, Google it, or use your favorite program to capture screen images and edit them. The TA can also help. Also you can take a picture with your phone and attach that.
Slide 6 (10 points)
Using the above form add five entries where the 'City' is equal to 'Bakersfield'. Leave the first field alone it will populate on its own. Use fictional data for the other fields. Remember the zip has to be numbers. Select only the cities that match 'Bakersfield'. Create a report with only the Bakersfield entries. Make the report look nice and copy it to the PowerPoint presentation as slide #6
You are done with slide #6.
