ACCESS Access is a database program used to enter, maintain, and retrieve related data in a format known as a database. Personally, I found Access quite challenging in the beginning. It was very complex and required a lot of concentration. It was very similar to Excel, except there was little room for errors. Although Access could be frustrating at times, the final product looks great. Our first project in Access was to create a database based on teachers. Each teacher had a number ID to identify themselves. Number ID’s are important because they help avoid confusion between repeated information. For example, someone could have the same first and last name as another person, but a number ID could specify who is who.Click here to see assignment

The desktop is the most important part of Windows 7because it is used as a workspace for projects and tools.You can personalize your desktop to match your needs.Along with the functions of Windows 7, we learnedabout the parts that we take for granted such as thepointer. The pointer is really important because itallows the user to move from one item to another byclicking.Personally, I prefer Windows 7 over any other operatingsystem, because of its overall performance. I feel that itis faster, and up to date.One of our first assignments was to take a screen shot ofour desktop and place it into a folder labeled lastname-firstletter-of-firstname_win7Click here for assignment

COMPUTER INJURIESOne chapter that I found intriguing in thetextbook, is how one’s posture while sittingat a computer can affect him/her physically.Statistics show that repetitive stress injuries(injuries that affect the hand, wrist,shoulder, or neck) and other injuries relatedto the work environment are one-third of allworkplace injuries. There are several othertypes of computer-related injuries.DeQuervain’s tendonitis- A condition inwhich the tendons on the thumb side of thewrist are both swollen and irritated.Carpal tunnel syndrome- A painful andcrippling condition affecting the hands andwrists that can be caused by computer use.
