From Questions to Queries

Abstract : The extension of (Internet) databases forces everyone to become more familiar with techniques of data storage and retrieval because users' success often depends on their ability to pose right questions and to be able to interpret their answers. University programs pay more attention to developing database programming skills than to data exploitation skills. To educate our students to become “database users”, the authors intensively exploit supportive tools simplifying the production of database elements as tables, queries, forms, reports, web pages, and macros. Videosequences demonstrating “standard operations” for completing them have been prepared to enhance out-ofclassroom learning. The use of SQL and other professional tools is reduced to the cases when the wizards are unable to generate the intended construct.
