Start Access. Open the file named Exp19_Access_Ch05_Cap_Varmel_Studio_Toys.accdb. Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename.
You will save the database file with a new name and create a new table that will be the source for a lookup.
Save the database file as Exp19_Access_Ch05_Cap_Varmel_Studio_Toys_LastFirst.accdb. Use Design view to create a new table. Add ItemTypeID as the first field name, with data type AutoNumber; add ItemTypeDescription as the second field name, with data type Short Text and field size 15.
Ensure ItemTypeID is set as the primary key. Save the table and name it Item Types. Add two records: Action Figure and Poster. Close the table.
You will edit the Inventory table design to validate data. You will make two fields required and add a validation rule to a field. You will also make sure you test the validation to make sure the rules work as intended.
Open the Inventory table in Design view. Set the InventoryQty and ItemTypeID fields to Required.
