IT163 Final Course Project: Household Inventory Database


Scenario



We have all seen or read the various reports over the years about how devastating a


natural disaster can be; whether it be a hurricane, flood, fire, earthquake, or tornado,


the results are devastating. Creating a home inventory is important and can be used to


help you reclaim what may be lost in a natural disaster.


For this final project you will be designing and developing a Household Inventory


Database (HID). You will be creating tables, relationships, queries, forms, and reports.


You will be evaluated and graded on each area of your database as shown in the grading


rubric that is located on the last page of this assignment.



Deliverables



You will submit one (1) database to the Final Project Dropbox no later than 11:59pm ET


on Tuesday. Please ensure you name your database: Final_Project_Lastname.accdb



Step 1: Create Two Tables



Ensure you name your tables as shown



Table one: Inventory Item



*Serial Number Text Field (Primary Key)


Item Text Field


Description Memo Field


Condition Lookup Field (Excellent, Good, Fair,


etc.)


Date of


Purchase


Date Field (short date M/DD/YYYY)


Purchase Price Currency Field


Location Lookup Field (rooms in your house)



Note: Location areas to include



Living room – Kitchen – Office – Bedroom - Garage


Feel free to include other rooms as you need. However, those four should be


included and have items in those locations.



Table two: Manufacturer Info



Manufacturer Text Field


Model Text Field



Project Grading Rubric



Course: IT163 Unit: 10 Points: 150



Copyright Kaplan University



Serial number Text Field


Warranty Boolean Field


(Yes/No)


Manufacturer URL Hyperlink



Step 2: Create a Form


(This form will be used for data entry).

1. Create a form by selecting an AutoFormat and modify the form to make it user


friendly by adding a descriptive title. You can also modify the actual form layout if


you like as well.


a. Save the form as: Inventory Form


2. Enter at least 15 records. Make sure you have items in each of the rooms of your


house. This will be important for the queries and report you will design.



Step 3: Creating Relationships



1. Create a relationship between the two tables that links the Primary key to the


foreign key.



Step 4: Creating Queries



After you have completed entering in all the data you will need to select and retrieve the


data in a variety of ways. The query object provides you with a way to select data that


meets the criteria you will set.


1. Use the Create Tab and select “Query Wizard”. Create a simple query that selects


item, manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, and location.


a. Save the query as: Room Items


2. In design view, add the Condition field to the query. Add a Selection Criteria to the


Location field so that only those records with the Location equal to “Living Room”


are displayed.


a. Save the query as: Living Room Items


3. Create a query that selects Items purchase, price and serial number


a. Save the query as: Item Price



Step 5: Create a Report



Create a report that will allow you to have a record of your inventory that includes only


the following: Item, Manufacturer, Model, and Purchase Price


1. Use the Report Wizard to create the report.

2. Modify the design so that the title is “Inventory Report” and all data and labels are


sized appropriately.


3. Add totals by room and a grand totally to the report and add labels to the totals.


a. Save the report as: Inventory Report
