Project Description

An access database contains a number of documents, in excel, word, pdf etc and in all different versions (doc, docx, xls, xlxs etc).

The requirements are as follows:

1. A front end screen to an access database – screen mock-up in page 2 and the requirements for the screen fields are in Table 1 Page 3. The front end does not need to be developed in Access

2. The front end will be installed on employee’s laptops/pcs but the database will not – need an install EXE file?

3. Need instructions on how to install the front end

4. The user clicks on any of the document link – on any field in the results table (results screen format shown in table 2)– and the document will open in the appropriate format. Note – the installation needs to take account of users having different versions of MS Office / PDF software etc. If this is going to be a problem we need a facility to change the path pointing to the corresponding application.


I’ll supply you with a dummy database and once you’ve completed the development we can switch over to the real version – the database is huge as some of the documents are very large. We’ll need some facility, therefore, to change the location/name of the database.

Front end screen has the following fields

field 1: Search Field - Seach whole database for exact match Not case sensitive

Field 2: Dropdown List

Field 3: Dropdown list Must select field 2 before selecting –

Field 4: Dropdown list Must select field 3 before selecting -

Results screen - will depend on the level of search. If search not refined then 1st level displayed where you can drill down into different levels
