Database Review
Presidential Information
On the other side of this page is a list of information about each of the Presidents of the United States. You will create a database in Microsoft
Access of SOME of this information. You must create a field called “Order” into which you put the president’s order of election (which is the
number at the far left of the page). You will then create a field for the President’s name. You will then select any 4 other fields. The other fields you
have to choose from are:
Born
Birthplace
Party
Age at inauguration
Served
Died
Age at death
College
Religion
Occupation
Runner-up
Vice-President
You will notice that not every president has an entry in every column. Not every president is dead yet, not every president went to college, and there
were several presidents who were never elected (they became president by being the vice-president when the president died) so there was no “runnerup. And those presidents often did not have a Vice-president if they had been the vice-president when the president died.
You will print the database (all 43 entries) in order by Presidential Order (the order that it is in already) and then sorted by one other field. You must
print each of these in REPORT FORMAT!
