Next Project Asset Tracking Database
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Microsoft Access TutorialsFor my next Access Seminar, I've been working on an Asset Tracking Database for a customer. I've got 90% of the basics completed, but I wanted to put a feeler out to all of you before I finished it: what features would YOU want to see in an asset tracking database? Post your comments here if you have anything interesting or unusual you'd like to see added that might not be in your "traditional" asset tracking database.

Code numbers for products Comment from Lisa Aldridge @ 8/15/2015
I would like to have code numbers for products that I can create to become auto number.  For example have a three letter prefix such as WPX and then 4 numbers starting at 1000 that auto number so the new /next code no is WPX1001.  Also I would like to use these code numbers as primary keys for easy look ups.  I have other ranges of products with different letter prefixes.  These letter prefixes represent different ranges of products.   I used an access program that had all these features, it was an access available in the 1990s.  Better still can you build my stock database.  I have been purchasing all your classes starting from beginner, however I seem to be running out of time to learn everything to build a stock database.
Cheers Lisa
