** Room Booking Database **

P: n/a
Hi folks

I teach. At school, four IT rooms are booked using a paper based outline
timetable. Completing it is easy but basic and impossible to ensure
completion of all fields (name, year group, subject and software) and
analysis of bookings is a nightmare.

I just fancied pottering with Access, which I am pretty familiar with, to
see if I could create a means of booking a room using a database. Locking a
booking would then be a problem to overcome and creating a means to analyse
the bookings should be easy.

I've scanned the internet for resources and ideas and have come up blank.

Anyway here have any ideas?

Appreciatingly yours :-)

Andy
