Providing a User Interface for the NHD Development Group
Inc.

In this project, you continue working on the database for an
antiques mall, Memories Antique Mall in Cleveland, Tennessee. Tim Richards, the
chief information officer of the NHD Development Group, which owns this mall,
recently reviewed the work you completed in the Antiques database. The queries,
forms, and reports you created are proving to be useful to the mall staff, and
are helping to streamline the mall operations. However, Tim is concerned that
users who are new to Access will find it difficult to navigate and select the
objects they need.

Tim asks you to create a user interface that provides an
easy way to view and select queries, forms, and reports in the Antiques
database. To personalize the database, he wants it to open with a window
showing the company name and logo along with command buttons users can click to
display a series of menus. Users should be able to select the objects they need
from these menus.

Complete the following:

Review your work to make sure that the navigation forms and
splash screen work properly and are attractive and easy to use. Figure 6.58
will give you an idea of what your splash screen could look like.
