Have you tried some of the sample databases that come with Access?

So just to clarify, you want a sample database to pass off as your own work, presumably you're pitching for a job or its a course assignment and you haven't provided any specifications or requirements, just that it must have about twenty customers?

You actually have the nerve to ask . . .

Even tho I have samples, and know where several are, I wouldn't point you in the right direction as I don't think it's morally (or ethically as a programmer) right to take credit for someone else's work.

i know i know, its not right,

Its for a friend who's doing an HND in business & developement, and basicly he needs a database by wednesday or he fails his course,
I know its probably his fault but i said i'd help,
so i either need to build one or use someone elses which would be alot easier.

Just incase i'll say what it needs:

Name, address, phone number, holiday bookings, flight detail and stuff like that.

I just thought it was worth a try before i spend my weekend builing it.

So, is it for you? Or for a 'friend'? Not that it matters to me because I wouldn't assist under these circumstances anyway, but from the looks of your table structure, and if you were a seasoned programmer, you could have that done in the wink of an eye, instead of the whole weekend.

If this was for you, you will find asking for assistance in design and code issues will reap you much benefit versus asking others to do your work for you. I believe most of us have jobs already and some also already involved with charities and don't need another one added to the list.

Wondering how many others of us have to work weekends...
