Download Apache Open Office and use the database tool to open the “Student Clubs.odb” file available here. Take some time to learn how to modify the database structure and then see if you can add the required items to support the tracking of faculty advisors, as described at the end of the Normalization section in the chapter (Information system for business and beyond: book beginning on p. 43. student table and club table). Review the Getting Started documentation
The following resources and tutorials are available to help you quickly learn how to modify the database structure using “Base”:
