1. Most people who need databases for professional use are not on a remote military base in Afghanistan. In what ways did Cdr. Baker’s situation and location help him on this database project? In what ways were they a hindrance?
2. Cdr. Baker could have implemented this simple data- base using a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. He would have one worksheet for People and a second for Appointments, with a column for each data element. He could then use one of Excel’s LOOKUP functions to associate people with their appointments. Discuss the pros and cons of using a spreadsheet program versus a full-fledged personal database management program, such as FileMaker Pro or Microsoft Access, for this application.
