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:

In addition to using a navigation form with the main menu,
Tim wants to personalize the database by displaying a splash screen when users
open the Antiques database. Create a splash screen that includes the name of
the mall and identifies NHD as its parent company. It should also contain the
NHD logo (NHD-logo.jpg) and your name and phone number so that users can
contact you if they have questions or problems with the database. Finally, the
splash screen should provide a command button that users can click to open the
main menu navigation form.
