Please find below the details of this project. I have also attached the project in its word format, so easier to view.
Use MS Access to generate a table with the following fields (filled with a dozen plausible records):
Registration 'number' (6 characters, text)
Gender(‘M’ or ‘F’)
Course (‘A’,’B’ or ‘C’).
(The database may need to be converted to Access 97.)
Using Visual C++ (version 6 NOT 7, and NOT Visual C++.NET), generate a database aware application which allows a user to browse through the records, using a dialog box to alter any of the fields on a record.
The dialog box should provide the choice for the ‘Gender’ field using radio buttons, and the choice for the ‘Course’ field by using a drop-down list box which contains the entries of a number of courses, corresponding to the letter stored in the database –
Table Letter Description/Course
A Applied Computer Technology
B Broadcast Technology
C Computer Engineering
The registration number should be validated (i.e. checked that it only contains numeric characters)
(I think this project is primarily visual, with some coding, and only needs to be fulfilled on a basic level.)
Do NOT use ODBC database access routines. Use DAO (NOT ADO) to access the database. (Hence why maybe needing to convert the database to Access 97)
Access directories for the database files should not be too complicated. (e.g.: .Directories such as ‘My Databases’ may not travel well as the directory path includes user information). Don’t forget to include the ‘.db’ file.
