Create a new database called Credit Control 2.mdb.
Import data from the Excel file in the folder shown above to create 2 new tables:
- AgedDebt, holding the outstanding debt figures by account number; and
- Accounts, showing details for each account
Create a query using ad hoc joins to show that there are two groups in the Accounts table with no corresponding AgedDebt figures:
The two groups not referenced
Create a separate query showing that there are 3 accounts with aged debt information which do not have corresponding entries in the Accounts table:
The three accounts not referenced in the other table
Close your queries and database down.
