Question 1

You'd most likely use a database application to do the following:

  • A. Track appointments.

  • B. Store important data.

  • C. Type letters .

  • D. Send email.


Answers A and B are correct. A database's main purpose is to store data, but if that data happens to be appointments, you can certainly track them using a database. Answer C is incorrect; use a word processor to type letters. Answer D is incorrect because you can't send email from a database.

Question 2

Which of the following are legitimate database objects?

  • A. Tables

  • B. Mail merge documents

  • C. Queries

  • D. Forms


Answers A, C, and D are correct. Answer B is incorrect. You use a word processor to create mail merge documents.

Question 3

Which is the best definition for a primary key?

  • A. The field on which two tables are related

  • B. The first field in a table

  • C. The table's only AutoNumber field

  • D. The field that uniquely identifies each record in the table.


Answer D is the best answer. Answer A is incorrect because tables can be related on nonkey fields. Answer B is incorrect because a field's position within the table has no bearing on whether it's a primary key. Answer C is incorrect; although primary key fields are often AutoNumber fields, a table can have an AutoNumber field that isn't a primary key.

Question 4

Which data type is the best choice for a field that must accommodate integer values between 0 and 255?

  • A. Byte

  • B. Integer

  • C. Single

  • D. Double


Answer A is correct. Answers B, C, and D are all much larger than necessary.

Question 5

Identify the following as a one-to-many relationship or a one-to-one relationship.

  • A. Customers aren't limited in the number of orders they may have open at any given time.

  • B. Each employee can handle more than one account.

  • C. Each employee can list only one address.

  • D. Each order may contain multiple items.

  • E. Each employee may have multiple appointments for any given day.


Answers A, B, D, and E represent one-to-many relationships. Answer C is the only one-to-one relationship.

Question 6

You want to limit entries to values between 10 and 100, and a data type alone won't get the job done. What else can you do?

  • A. Use validation text to alert the user to the restrictions.

  • B. Set the Validation Rule property to the following expression: >=10 AND <=100 .

  • C. Nothing: you must update incorrect entries as you find them.

  • D. Set the Field Size property to 100.


Answer B is correct. Answer A is incorrect because the Validation Text property simply relays information; it doesn't actually restrict the value. Answer C is incorrect. Answer D is incorrect; that setting isn't valid for a number data type.

Question 7

Identify the ways you can find specific data in a table or form.

  • A. Use the Find command.

  • B. Apply a filter.

  • C. Use the Magnifying tool.

  • D. Run a query.


Answers A, B, and D are all correct. Answer C is incorrect; there isn't any such tool, although you can use a similar type tool to zoom in on data.

Question 8

Where's the best spot for page numbers on a report?

  • A. The detail section

  • B. The report header

  • C. The page footer

  • D. Any group footer


Answer C is the best spot for page numbering in a report because that text is printed on each page. Answer A is incorrect because the detail section would print a page number for each record in the report. Answer B is wrong because the page number would appear only once at the beginning of the report. Answer D is incorrect because a group footer appears at the bottom of each group and could appear several times on one page or not at all.

Question 9

To sort data by the customer name in ascending order, you'd do which of the following?

  • A. With the Customers form or table open, click the Sort Ascending tool.

  • B. Choose Sort Ascending from the Records menu.

  • C. Select the CustomerName field and click the Filter by Selection tool.

  • D. Select the CustomerName field and click the Sort Ascending tool.


Answer D is correct. Answer A is incorrect because you must select the field first. Answer B is incorrect for the same reason and because the Sort Ascending option is not available from the Records menu; you must select Sort first. Answer C is incorrect because the Filter by Selection tool doesn't sort.

Question 10

To print just pages 1 through 10 in a 30-page report, you'd do the following:

  • A. Click the Print tool and then enter 1-10.

  • B. Press Ctrl+P and select the Selected Records option.

  • C. Choose Print from the File menu and then enter 1 and 10 in the From and the To controls, respectively.

  • D. Choose Print from the File menu and then enter 1-10 in the Pages control.


Answer C is correct. Answer A is incorrect because the Print tool prints every page. Answer B is incorrect because there is no Selected Records option when printing a report. Answer D is incorrect because you must enter the beginning and ending pages in different controls.
