    Unanswered: Vacation Database

    Hello Everyone..

    I am looking for some help with MS Access 2007. My boss told me to create a vacation database for our team (20 employees) and since I am pretty new to access I am struggling with some of the concepts required to do this project. The basic requirements are as follows:
    - employees submit request for vacation through access
    - management approves or disapproves through access
    - vacation can be taken in 2 hr, 4 hr, 6 hr or 8 hr time frames or for whole days / week
    Nice to have:
    - If the vacation gets approved to link it to employees Outlook calendar

    If some one could post in detail what I need to do what fields i need to have to create the above I would greatly appreicate it. I know that i need to create a form which i can do through the form wizard in access 2007 for employees to request but then how would i get that form to management for them to approve or decline?

    as you are using outlook, personally I'd do the whole thing in outlook and avoid Access all together
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    I asked him that as well because i found the outlook forms a lot easier but he wants it in access. He's a big access fan. Plus I am thinking this project is him trying to get me comfortable with access so he can give me more work in it. I have always been giving him alternate solutions to using access.
