Recall that you are the Access database administrator for the marketing and documentation departments of companies in the software and networking business. For one of your large clients, you need to set a database to display dates properly.
As we stated in the first module, the
database is included in the compressed download file available on the Resources page. If you've already downloaded the database, continue to work in that version.
Open the table called Hours in Design mode.
Set the Validation Rule property of the field called DateWorked to ensure that the data entered is less than or equal to the system date.
