Architects room data sheets

Architects room data sheets
Views: 4
I have produced all my tables for my room data sheets (I only have 2, one for general room information which contains unique text or yes/no check boxes and the second for equipment whichwill be within each room) but I am now a little stuck with the room information input form (my main form which will allow users to input the data for each room and add or delete existingrooms).

Within my room information input form I have the room number and name at the top and have tabbed pages for each section of the room data sheets, piped services, wastes, power and comms.etc.I haven't had any problems setting these up so far and all seem to work fine.

I now need to add the relevant equipment which will be within each room. I have created a separate table for each piece of equipment with the relevant information eg name, manufacturer, size, required services.etc.

I would like a tabbed page within my room information input form which produces a drop down list where I can select a piece of equipment (from my equipment table) and type in the quantity of that piece of equipment within the room, once I have selected a piece of equipment I want it to produce a second drop down list where I could add a secondor third if required.

Currently when I insert the table it does just that and gives me a list of all the items within my equipment table. This tells me I should not be importing the table but I'm not sure what ineed to produce (table, query,form)

Query based report question - run report on one record

Query based report question - run report on one record Icon
So I have 3 tables in my DB, Estate, Room and Item. Every estate has multiple rooms, each room has multiple items. I have made acceptable data entry forms for my employees using split forms/nested data sheets. I have record navigation button that switched the estate the user is viewing.

I want a button to create a report for the estate at hand. This report will show the items in the estate, grouped by room. I have the report showing what I want, but the problem is that it is reporting on all estates - not just the active one.

How can I do this? I am trying to keep this as user friendly (least amount of typing/ideally just a single button) as possible.

Primary Keys

Primary Keys Icon
I have three tables in my database but have chosen the wrong unique identifiers: This is what I have come up with so far.

Customer: (Customer ID, Last Name, First Name, Contact Number, Email) Key: Customer ID
Room: (Room ID, Room Name, Phone Number, Equipment, Disabled Access, Capacity) Key: Room ID
Booking: (Room ID, Customer ID, Subject, Booking Date, Time) Key:Room ID & Customer ID

The customer needs to be able to book the same room in the same day at a different time but this is leading to the Room ID being duplicated and this is the primary key.

Data Model Example: Hotel Room Booking Scenario

Data Model Example: Hotel Room Booking Scenario Icon
The following data model is designed to hold information relating to a Hotel Room Booking System.
For this scenario we need to define the following facts:
These facts define the requirements which the Database must meet and should be agreed between the Database User and the Database Designer prior to physical creation.
A local hotel needs a system that keeps track of its bookings (future, current and archived), rooms and guests. A room can be of a particular type and a particular price band. Room prices vary from a room to a room (depending on its type, available facilities, band, etc.) and from a season to a season (depending on the time of the year).

Queries by table data

Queries by table data Icon
I am stuck on, honestly, All I have saved in the file is table data (about a hotel, dates, type of room, etc) and I am trying to create queries that determine average length of stay based on room type, average number of visitors per roomtype, base income per room, strongest customer base, etc.

I am completely stuck on how to run a query for the first request (average length of stay based on room type.

I am pretty familiar with excel and what I would have done was determine the # of days based on the arrival/departure date and then run an averageif function for each room type. I don't know what to do with access though.

Format info on form by type

Format info on form by type Icon
There is a query or table that has all data as seen in the pic. The pic shows form dividers which essentially partition the form by room. My clunky idea is to create several subforms. Each with a room header and then a student detail section. Each subform will have to have a query based on the room.

Each form can grow or shrink and maybe even not be visible (no students in room 56). Size and presence of the subform could be detected and subforms placed and positioned.

Reports have an excellent solution to this with a group by option. No option exists for forms.

I have a small table for a hotel with 30 rooms.3 room types. I have to find out:

1. The average length of stay per room type
2. The average # of visitors per room type
3. The base income per room length of visit x daily rate) during a specified period of time (a single month)

I have the following fields:
First Name
Last Name
Room Name
Room Type
Arrival Date
Departure Date
# Guests
Daily Rate

I have been able to do a query including the room type, arrival and departure dates.

I have been doing a bunch of online learning for access but it is not helping. Maybe I am taking the wrong online courses. Can anyone help me to understand how to make calculations and where they are placed in a query

Conversion from Excel to Access

Conversion from Excel to Access Icon
I have a document that I am wondering if it can be converted into an Access database, how easy it will be, and if it can retain the same functionality as my current book.

Let me first explain the Excel workbook.

The book is full of formatted "documents" used to standardize our consulting process. The first couple of worksheets are data input areas,

Every sheet "pulls" information from another sheet, and some sheets have multiple sheets that they pull data from.

Some sheets are simply contracts that can be printed and most have calculations built in.

Replacing and Adding Data

Replacing and Adding Data Icon
I have 4 Excel sheets that feed into 1 database. From there, I have been able to create multiple queries and develop 1 table with data from all 4 sheets. My problem arises when data is updated (new address, open issue changed to closed, etc.) or new entries are added. How can I get my database to search for updates from the queries and correct the old entries while adding the new?
