December 16, 2009

Today we found out that our class had been nominated for the edublogawards 2009. This is a great success for us because we have not been blogging for that long and already we have a chance at winning an international award for blogging. We are competing with some of the top schools around the world and i think we have a very good chance at winning. We would really appreciate it if you could vote for our class here.

We are called Forrester High School Int 2 Info Systems. Click vote and make us one step closer to winning!

Sorting Databases

December 7, 2009

Last time in information systems we looked at sorting databases. Databases are very efficient at searching and sorting large amounts of data. The ways that a database can sort (which we know so far) is either ascending or descending, this means that the data will either be from A-Z (ascending) or Z-A (descending) in numeric this is 1-9 (ascending) or 9-1 (descending). When sorting ONE field this is a simple sort, when sorting TWO OR MORE fields then it is a complex sort.

Here is a video on how to sort mulitple fields, this is in Microsoft Access but the functions are pretty much the same compared with Filemaker Pro.
