    So you need something like a construction or project management type application?

    Google: Access template database construction management

    If you are sure you want to go ahead with building your own set-up, for all the functions you want, it might pay to start with simple basics, normalised so further 'add-ons' happen with minimal disruption to the original tables etc.

    Start with the simple stuff you might expect to see.

    Table tEmployee
    eID
    eNameF
    eNameL
    eDateStart
    eDateLeave

    Table tCraft
    cID
    cDescription

    Table tEmployeeCraft
    ecID [autonumber]
    ecEmployeeId [fk]
    ecCraftId [fk]
    ecQualifyLevel
    ecQualifyDate

    Table tProject
    pID
    pCustomerId [fk]
    pDesignId [fk]

    Table tCustomer
    cstID
    cstName
    cstAddressLine1
    etc...

    You get the idea. Start right and future expansion will happen easily. Get it wrong and it will be difficult to expand.

    Let me know if you need a hand.
