Tasks:

You need to create and submit spreadsheets in Microsoft Excel that accomplish the following:

  1. Display a database table in first normal form that will store all of the information listed above. Identify a field or fields to act as the primary key bybolding that field name. Enter all of the provided information into the table in the spreadsheet.

    Save your spreadsheet as M3_A2_Lastname_Firstname_FirstNormalForm.xls.

  2. Decompose the table you created in Step 1 to second normal form. Place each table in its own sheet within the spreadsheet. Identify a field or fields to act as the primary key in each table by bolding that field name. You may insert a new field to act as the primary key if you feel it is warranted. Enter all of the provided information into the appropriate table in the spreadsheet.

    Save your spreadsheet as M3_A2_Lastname_Firstname_SecondNormalForm.xls.

  3. Decompose the table or tables you created in Step 2 to third normal form. Place each table in its own sheet within the spreadsheet. Identify a field or fields to act as the primary key in each table by bolding that field name. You may insert a new field to act as the primary key if you feel it is warranted. Enter all of the provided information into the appropriate table in the spreadsheet.

    Save your spreadsheet as M3_A2_Lastname_Firstname_ThirdNormalForm.xls.

In addition, in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document, you need to:

  • Share your planning strategy to complete the database.
  • Create an entity-relationship diagram from the tables that you designed above using crow's foot notation. Be sure to note the cardinality and modality for each relationship.
  • Explain why you selected the links between each of the database tables.

Save your document as M3_A2_Lastname_Firstname_EntityRelationshipDiagram.doc.

Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA); and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
