    Requested: General help for Database Assignment

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a noob round here, but don't let that put you off

    I'm a 3rd year university student, and I have a database assignment I am finding particularly tricky. It is overdue, although I have been granted an extension by my tutors, due to extreme personal circumstances. It's based on a case study, and using that information to design a database and produce sample queries and what not. I imagine for someone that knows what they're doing, it probably wouldn't be that taxing, but at present, I don't happen to be that someone

    Let me make it clear, I'm not looking for someone to do my assignment for me, as that isn't exactly going to help me learn anything about databases, but I'd appreciate if anyone would be able to help me by going through the assignment with me. As I'm outside the original deadline period, I can't really get any help from my tutors, so I'm kinda left to my own devices right about now. Hopefully someone would be willing to spare a bit of their time to help out? And if not, well thanks anyway

    Thanks in advance

    ... And I'm a fossil who had database design in college oh about 18 or so years ago ... BUT, I do have a nice normalization chart ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    suggestions and help begin and end right here: please ask a specific question

    remember, we don't do assignments, but we will help you do yours

    you have to do all the work here

    don't make us read a 9-page detailed specs doc and offer our suggestions

    what you should do instead is ask us to correct something that you've created

    ah okay....I understand. I wasn't trying to get you to wade through my assignment, I just thought it might help you understand the context of what I am trying to do. I need to first of all translate the case study into a UML class diagram. I've done an initial one, although I'm sure I'll have to make some modifications to it

    sorry for the misunderstanding
