Applying the Strategy to the Computer Consulting Firm Application

When it's finished, the Time and Billing application for the computer consulting firm introduced in Chapter 1, “Introduction to Access Development,” will be made up of two databases: one containing the majority of the tables, and the other with the remainder of the database objects, including static and temporary tables. The application will be developed with the idea that the data might eventually be moved to a back-end database server and designed so that the transition to client/server will be as smooth as possible. The forms and reports that make up the application will be based on stored queries to maximize their flexibility and efficiency. Finally, the application will be designed so that it can easily run from Access's runtime version and will be secured so that its data and other objects can't be accessed by unauthorized users. As you move through the chapters in the book, each of these design strategies will be carried out.
