Assignment 7 Solution

The database Microland.accdb is maintained by the Microland Computer Warehouse, a mail-order computer-supply company.  The illustrations below show data in the Customers table and the Orders Table in the database.  The table identifies each customer by an ID number and gives, in addition to the name and address, the total amount of purchases during the current year.  The Order table provides the customer id and the item ordered.

The database that contains the table for this assignment is contained within your Instructions folder and should be placed in your project’s bin\debug folder.

c.   The customer and the order table are joined and the orders for the customer are displayed in the atagrid.  The datagrid should have headers for the data as shown below.

d.   The purchases should be formatted to be currency

e.   A Display Total Purchases should be included to sum up all of the total purchases for all names listed in the lstOutput.  This information should be displayed in a message box.

f.  A Clear button should be included to clear all of the textboxes and datagrid.  [Note that it should not clear the listbox containing the customers’ names.]
