    Art booking system - how can I stop double bookings


    I work across a number of small venues which have art cases that can be booked for displays. I am trying to build a simple data base to report what space is available and also what art is currently being displayed. The art is usually booked by month, but sometime it can be booked for a week etc.

    I have set up 3 tables

    Art Inventory

    Art Cases by Venue

    Art Case Bookings

    In the art case booking form, I have set up the start and end date but I cannot figure out how to avoid double bookings of a case? Once I have that worked out I believe I know how to build the required reports for my needs.

    I know there are number of other posts about this sort of database but I am self taught and get totally lost when people start posting code. I've attached a copy of my database to this thread.. if anyone could help that would be amazing!!

    thank you

    I realize this is your first post here. But for reference, when you cross post, you should inform the readers that you have done so, and identify the link to the cross post.
    In this case:


    Bottom line: Cross posting/multi posting is fine, but do have the courtesy to advise the reader and display the associated link(s).
