DatabaseThe next exam for Mr. Hannon’s ECDL class is scheduled for Thursday April 2nd in the Computer Room. This exam is on Module 5 – Database.

As discussed in class today, a database is simply a file that stores information or data. We actually use databases every day on the web e.g., searching for the book you want on Amazon, looking for a used car on Carzone.  All businesses and organisations maintain a database of their employees and customers e.g., we have a database here in the school of all students.

You should divide Module 5 into four sections:

  1. Tables
  2. Forms
  3. Queries
  4. Reports

Use your CD and Syllabus as always to prepare for the exam and you should also look at the videos for Module 5 on
