Hello Everyone,
I am currently using Access 97 as a Database Developing Software, however, I am having a problem in creating a documentation for this. Do I have to generate a procedure in building appplications with Access? Am i going to include the ultimate design of a certain database, e.g. Material Control Database? Please advice.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you very much.

Vash,

Considering that there are a multitude of methods that can be used to develop forms (Word), spreadsheets (Excel), and databases (Access) and that each person probably has their own preferred method, I can't see why a procedure would be wanted.

Think of it through an auditors eyes:

There is a procedure to develop an Access database. I will take the procedure and ask how you can show that the database was developed following the procedural steps. (pretend I am an anal retentive auditor)

Don't tie your hands and commit to something that is almost impossible to control.Once the document has been developed the only need I see is to control the document and resulting records.

The only things you may want to address in a documented procedure would be requirements such as form identification (footer requirements?) and stuff like that. You may already have that addressed in your document control procedures so ensure what ever you do mates with your related systems.
