Hello to all,
I have been doing now this for a week, but am unable to reach to a good point to start.
How can I do/put this in Access.
Please is anybody there to see my attachment file and give a correct table structure and what is the best approach in presenting into forms all the relevant entry / editing task.
Note this is only a sample, please consider that in the actual I will have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grading to process.
Please I appreciate very much your positive reply..

We'd need to know more about what you're trying to do. Explain the need you're trying to fill with this db, and what it's for, and that will help us give you advice on structure.

Are you in a school district teaching? If so, why not talk to the IT coordinator/staff and see if they can't acquire an actual grading program. There are several good ones out there and lots of grants available to help schools that don't have large budgets.
As Ben said, a little more detail might be needed here. I understand your spreadsheet, I built my Dad a grading database for his Building Trades class shortly before the district decided to go with a networked grading system. Oh well, it was a learning experience anyway.

Hello Ben & Jason,
Thank you for your reply, Ben I will sort things and I will post more detail on it. Jason, I am not, but one of my cousin (Teacher) does and I told her that I will make a DB for her grading calculation. Just want to help her, I have seen her spending too much time doing in Excell manually, so I volunteered.
Jason, is it possible to see your Dad's DB (Grading database), I may pick up some good ideas how to do it.
Thanks again guys,

Sorry for the slow reply, I seem to not make it here as much as I'd like. I will try to track down a copy of it. There were lots of things I have learned since that DB so don't rely on tables to be normalized properly and what not. I don't remember what stage of learning I was at when I created it.
