By Steven Roman

I've been utilizing entry and VBA for many years, with none formal education in relational database or programming. during this concise ebook, Steven Roman controlled to offer a powerful starting place within the concept of relational databases, VBA and DAO.

Armed with this information, I now have the boldness to dig deeper in those 3 subject matters and research extra complex material.

One draw back although: i discovered the final a part of the ebook on ADO particularly complicated. Steven Roman prefers DAO to ADO and it shows.

I however supply the booklet five stars, because the first 3 components of the ebook are stellar.

For instance, we only need to rename the ConID attribute to AuID to make ConID into a foreign key that will implement the Authors-Contributors IsA relationship. 3 Implementing a Many-to-Many Relationship—New Entity Classes The implementation of a many-to-many relationship is a bit more involved. For instance, consider the WrittenBy relationship between Books and Authors. At first glance, we might think of just adding foreign keys to each table scheme, thinking of the relationship as two distinct one-to-many relationships.

These concepts apply equally well to table schemes, so we may say that the attributes {A,B} form a key for a table scheme, meaning that they form a key for the entity class implemented by that table scheme. 2 Implementing Entity Sets—Tables In a relational database, each entity set is modeled by a table. For example, consider the BOOKS table shown in Table 3-1, and note the following: • • • The first row of the table is the table scheme for the Books entity class. Each of the other rows of the table implements a Books entity.

I should hasten to add that these classifications are somewhat subjective and depend upon the assumptions made about the entity class. Nevertheless, this classification does provide a useful intuitive framework. We can at least pin down the strictly informational attributes a bit more precisely by making the following observation. The sign that an attribute is being used (at least in part) for identification purposes is that it is part of some key. Thus, an attribute that is not part of any key is being used, in that table scheme, strictly for informational purposes.
