Chapter 4. Planning a Database > Identifying Possible Forms

Identifying Possible Forms

You should have a good idea of the tables you’ll be creating after you actually start building your application. The next step in designing a database is to consider other objects you might need to work with your data. A good place to start is with the forms you’ll need to maintain and view that data. This early in the process, you can probably depend on needing a data entry form or two.

This is a good time to pull out all those paper forms you gathered during the discovery process and determine how efficient they were. You might want to continue to work with the original form design translated from paper to computer screen. Or, you might want to consider a more efficient or productive design. Just because you’ve recorded information one way for a while, doesn’t mean you can’t improve on it.
