You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new database to hold your Christmas shopping list ideas, called Xmas list.

In this database, create and populate a table to hold the people for whom you are buying presents:
