    Holiday & Sickness tracker

    Hi,

    I am thinking about designing a database to track sickness and holiday for my department as the one we have on excel is too prone to human error. I need it to be able to calculate days renaming, bradford factor points based on sickness absence only and show calendars with employee leave dates on for managers - run reports etc.



    does anyone have anything similar they are willing to share or point me in the right direction with how to set this up, so far I know I'll need an employee details table, absence reason table, data entry form, and leave days taken table or similar. I don't want to spend ages on it and find out I have done it all wrong. I am not an access expert but can execute instructions if explained well!

    Any thoughts ideas appreciated.

    HI Orange,

    I did have a look at the links and couldn't find what I was looking for other than the consensus that this is complicated! I think I have found an off the shelf solution for excel that might give me what I need so will pursue that unless anyone comes up woth anything on here. I know how to calculate bradford factor just don't know how to make it work in excel doing what I need it to do.

    thanks

    Good luck.
    You had a concern
    the one we have on excel is too prone to human error.
    Make sure the proposed replacement addresses all your current (and envisioned) concerns.
