Example Database Tables

Appendix C


Example Database Tables

The examples used throughout this book reference several database tables. The schemas and data for these tables are listed in this appendix. Because of its low cost, wide availability, and ease of use, all tables were designed using Microsoft Access. Because

Access is a desktop database, I don’t recommend using it in production environments, especially where many concurrent users are expected to use the database.

Access isn’t designed for heavy concurrent use and may experience scalability and performance issues if placed under load. Additionally, there are limits on the amount of data that can reliably be stored in an Access database.

For production applications, I recommend you use an enterprise-level database, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, Informix, Sybase, MySQL, or PostgreSQL.

These databases provide advanced features and functionality, such as stored procedures and triggers, and are specially tuned for handling multiple concurrent requests and massive amounts of data.

Cutting, Copying, and Pasting

Figure 2-13. Bookmarks are useful if you need to jump back and forth between different locations. To move to a bookmark, open the Go To dialog box (F5), and then select Bookmark from the list at left.

The drop-down list at right lists all the bookmarks in your document. Simply choose one from the list.


The Find, Replace, and Go To dialog boxes have memory. While you’re working in a document, it remembers the tab and list items you last used. So, if earlier you found a particular bookmark, then the next time you click Go To (or press F5), Word finds that same bookmark.

Deleting bookmarks

About the only reason you’d want to delete a bookmark is if your list’s getting cluttered and it’s hard to find the bookmark you want. In any case, it’s easy to delete bookmarks using the same dialog box you use to create them (Figure 2-12). Just pick the soon-to-be-terminated bookmark from the list and click Delete. It’s a goner.

Cutting, Copying, and Pasting

When it comes time to edit your text and shape it into a masterpiece of communication, the job is all about cutting, copying, and pasting. Compared to actually using scissors and paste (which is what writers and editors did in the pre-PC era), Word makes manipulating text almost effortless. You’re free to experiment, moving words, sentences, and paragraphs around until you’ve got everything just right.

Jess's First Coon Hunt

Slice PDF May 17, 2014

Page 155


When I was in high school in Hondo, Texas, I hunted for varmints all winter long. Furs were bringing good prices, and I could make some good spending money from selling them. Even though I was after anything with fur that I could sell, we always just called it

“coon hunting.” There were three ways that we hunted back then.

First, and my favorite, was walking the creeks at night with my dogs and letting them tree the varmints. My dogs were not noisy hounds, but rather quiet Border Collies that would only bark if they had something treed, and even then, they did not bark a lot. I trained them to be quiet so as not to scare off the rest of the critters along the creek. Also, I didn’t always have permission to hunt on all the places along the creeks where I walked. Back then, nobody really cared about me hunting for coons along the creeks.

That changed a few years later when fur prices got really high. I did this type of hunting by myself, and when I was most serious about the hunt.
