ABCD Part 1: Core Database

Welcome to ABCD Part 1: Core. Total running time is 3 hours, 27 minutes.

This is the foundation of the database. We will construct the tables and forms necessary to store information about people, organizations, and companies (called Entities). Each entity can have an unlimited number of phone, email, and physical addresses. We will use Helper data tables to store all of the minor information like name prefixes, suffixes etc. so that we don't clutter the database with dozens of tiny tables. We will create a function to assign EntityCode values to each person so we don't expose our AutoNumbers.

ABCD Addressee Lines Link

Rick, I have built a database with several hundred academic institutions in it.  The addressees would be Name, University, School/Department, Department, Street1, etc.  There may be as many as four or even five different Addressee lines.  I know that is customizable, but I hope you are going to show us how to fill those lines without having to type them in every time.

My thinking is that the Addressee lines will only be used if you want to change the way correspondence is printed. For example, you're a school, and you've got Joe Smith as the Entity. However, as a matter of courtesy, he would like printed correspondence to come to the house as "Joe and Sue Smith," or even "The Parents of Bobby Smith."

Another example: you have Peter Williams as a contact for XYZ Company, but he has requested that printed correspondence come to him as "Peter Williams, Accounts Payable."

Addressee1 and 2 will override the default setting which is going to be the person's name followed by the company name. We haven't gotten that far yet to do anything that involves printing (letters, invoices, etc.)

OK. Look forward to it.  Thank you.
