  • I mentioned a LOT of different links in this course. I moved them all to this page: Links



  • Thanks to Dan Jackson for bringing this to my attention. In Lesson 12 (Customer Reports) at both time indexes 8:10 and again at 13:35, I mention that I'm not sure why the report wizard is putting LastName, then FirstName, then CustomerID in that order. Dan pointed out it's due to my sort order. I sorted the fields in that order. Duh! You're absolutely right Dan. Momentary brain fart on my part. I don't usually build reports using that wizard (unless I'm teaching a class) so it totally escaped me at the moment.

Mailing List Upload Images   Link

What is the best approach if you are creating a mailing list and you have multiple people under the same address or you have the same person that has multiple addresses (vacation home). If I need a record for each person in the family to track birthdays but I want to be able to send a single mailing for the entire family for a holiday card, how should I set up the database? Do I create separate tables (1 that includes names and birthday's, etc.. and another that includes addresses) and create a relationship between the two tables or can I include all of the information in a single table and there is a way that I can indicate which address it should go to or when its a single mailing to multiple people.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I'd have separate tables, you could then have an AddressID in the person table if you only want one, or a junction table of personid and addressid with as many records as you want, you could then do a groupby and if they all match for a family then only one would show for your report you wish to send.
