    Help with making airport booking system

    Hi Guys,

    Relatively inexperianced with access, so I just need a bit of help. I need to make an airport booking system with 3 tables, these are:

    PERSONAL DETAILS(CustomerNumber, Title, First Name, Last Name, Address, Town, County, Postal code, Phone, Emails, DOB, Flying to)
    FLIGHT DETAILS (Flight Number, Flying to, Flying from, Time leaving, Time arriving, Lengh of flight)


    BOOKING DETAILS (Booking Number, Customer Number, Flight Number)

    So I have relationships from PERSONAL DETAILS and FLIGHT DETAILS to the BOOKING DETAILS. I'm just a bit confused, is what I'm doing right? Are my relationships right? I also need to make a form with sub form, so what do I have to do there? THANKS PEOPLES FOR ALL YOUR HELP BEFOREHAND! I can send you my database if need be

    Matthew

    Before getting too deep into Access, confirm your Tables and Relationships.

    Here are some links to videos and site that should help. These are geared to database design.

    The first few topics are well worth the read.

    http://www.rogersaccesslibrary.com/forum/topic238.html

    For help with access generally, this link has been referenced often
    http://www.accessmvp.com/strive4peace/ Lots of Access Syntax, rational, samples etc.

    For your programming, you may want to adopt a naming convention that does NOT allow spaces in field and object names to prevent headaches in future.

    Good luck

    The only suggestion i would make for normalisation is remove the [Flying to] field from [PERSONAL DETAILS] as this field can be extracted from a query with the flight details via the booking details. This would also remove confusion should the same person book several different flights, otherwise I would say you are off to a solid start.

    I agree with R. Badger with respect to the Flying To field in [PERSONAL DETAILS]. However, we don't know the extent of what you are dealing with and without knowing the full scope of your intended application, it makes further comments/options etc difficult.

    There is a data model for airlines reservation at

    It may be overkill for your needs, but may give you additional info regarding your application and scope.

    Good luck with your project.
