Equipment Database Table Setup Upload Images   Link   Email  
Janelle Davis

I am looking to find out how much it would cost to hire someone to set up the tables for me for an equipment database.  I'm open to someone just setting them up completely for me, or paying for them to walk me through setting them up, or them setting them up while explaining.  I know how important it is going to be for the tables to be set up correctly and I am still really struggling to understand what should be a separate table.  I think I will be able to set up the forms, etc. that I want, but I would be open to coming back to the same person and paying them for help with various tasks as I move along.  While this is for work, I will be paying for it myself, so I am somewhat limited in the funds I have available.

You can e-mail me at [email protected] if you want to discuss costs, but if you're going out of pocket on it, it may be better to try to utilize the forums here for questions you have and only pay for things that you really don't understand, if you want to do some of the work yourself that is.

For instance getting started on the tables, these could be helpful starting points

Janelle if you haven't already go watch the Association Series Richard is working on.  Starting here: Association 1

Seriously consider one of the TechHelp Memberships to supplement your Learning Connection. While the 'Free' videos are great the Extended cuts will help take you to the next level.

You are just about to get into the meat a potatoes of Access now that you have started the Expert.  The Beginner really shows you about Access but from Expert on you learn more about making good databases.  That is just the learning curve.  Like Adam said ask us lots of questions if you don't understand.

Two more for you to watch (You didn't say what you're wanting to track on equipment :-)  )

Adam, I sent you an email.  I have watched both of those videos, but my brain still wants to overthink the correct data division for the tables.

Scott, so are you saying that it will make more sense as I go through the Expert lessons how to divide the data into the correct tables?  I will look at the TechHelp Memerships.  I have not watched the videos you linked to, so I will do that.  Thank you.

Oh, as of right now, it is just basically a listing of the equipment with year, make, model, what type of insurance we're carrying on it, the purchase price, etc.

Yes, I'm saying it does get easier as you gain knowledge.  I was given the task of maintaining our data base 10 years ago.  I finally found Richard and his videos a little over 5 years ago.  It's been a wild ride ever since.

I really love the fact that he is working little bits of VBA into the simple lessons.  I wish he had done so way back but we all learn along the way.  I've watched him grow as an Instructor as well.

I've come to realize that my db is a living thing.  By that I mean that it's constantly evolving.  I tweak it a little here and there depending on my ever changing needs AND my ever changing knowledge growth.  Don't think of it as one huge project that has to be perfect to use it.  Start out now and get most of what you want.  As you grow your own db will grow and change with you.
