Training database for Download

Training database for Download Icon
I would like to make up an access database that has staff details, a table with the staff levels and one with training courses, which are linked to staff and staff level. I would like reports to show staff indiv training, staff group training schedules and training available by name and dates etc.

and my skills are not good enough to amend microsofts employee example as there are too many sub forms and things I would have to change that I don't have the knowledge to do.

Employee Training Records

Employee Training Records Icon
I want to create a database to track training for approximately 47 employees, but I just don't know how to set it up. I need to track training employee provided or training an employee received as well as special events and international training.

Right now, I just have a basic table and everytime someone either provides/receives training, another record is entered, but which creates a lot of records. Is there a more efficient way to set this up?

I am trying an if statement but it does not work it only sums all training hours.

How can I sum only state training hours? Here is what I have tried so far.


Access database query/report question

Access database query/report question Icon
I have an access database that contains training records for employees. I am trying to figure out how to create a query/report that will tell me who needs, for example, forklift training, when I click on the report. In this example, forklift training has to take place for an employee every 2 years. Each time the employee has forklift training, it is logged in the database under "6" (which signifies forklift training) and the date of the training is logged as well. I can create a query that shows me everyone who has been trained in the last 2 years. However, I want to be able to see all those employees that have had this training in the past, who may not be up to date. In other words, in my current query that shows everyone who has been trained in the last 2 years, I have to be able to see whose name is missing from the list (who had training previous to the 2 years). Thanks for any help I can get!

Add Multiple Employees to a Training

Add Multiple Employees to a Training Icon
I am working on a database to track all sorts of employee information (certifications, training, etc) and would like to add multiple employees to a training instance at once. For instance, if the employees at a particular office attend a training, I would like to be able to generate a list of employees and then select those employees to associate them to a particular training.

Some background

3 tables: Employees, Emp_Training_Assoc, Training
Emp_training_assoc has 3 fields, EmpTrain_ID (PK), Employee_ID, Training_ID

Currently I have a form set up to generate a training record. Then a command button to move to another form where the association would take place.

Also, new jumpers(names) will have to be added every year.

Best way to table design ?

Best way to table design ? Icon
I have several different departments with lots of employees attending training, and I need to be able to keep track of their attendance, and I have to be able to save a history of the data for the entire training cycle (training event and the date of training).

What is the best way to do this in Access, keeping in mind that ease of data entry is a must, since I have a lot of departments and there employees to track? What I need is to be able to create a attendance roster for a department and update of the employees at once if possible.

Date Calculation : auto calculate the expiry date on the form

Date Calculation : auto calculate the expiry date on the form Icon
I have a DB which tracks training of employees. The grace periods allowed with the training is that new training can be completed within 90 days of the expiry date without changing the anniversary date (e.g. the training is due on 1 April 2010, the employee conducts the training on 2 January 2010 but gets to keep the 1 April anniversary date).

The table I am working with is mainly based on the date of training and the training type (which determines whether the training expires on the 1st of the 13th, 25th or 37th months or if it keeps the same date); what I would like is for the end user to input the data into a form, have it autocalculate the expiry date on the form so they can verify the information and then once the form is closed, have this information fed into the table so that we can print training reports for the managers.

I'm not versed in VB and am reaching my limit of understanding with queries,

Query that results in a list of employees that DON'T have specific training.

Query that results in a list of employees that DON'T have specific training. Icon
I am using Access to keep track of employee records. One the records in called "Pre-Job Safety Orientation".

I can produce a query to show me the list of people who HAVE the training. Currently, this produces a list of 123 employees who have the training.

I would like to produce a list of people who DO NOT have this training. This list would therefore produce a result of 25 people as we currently have 148 on staff.

It is a painful process digging through to find out who we need to get into training.
