When you are done, submit your database to the Week 3 Course Project Dropbox.Problems?Problems do sometimes occur, and if they do make sure you follow the correct steps to get them resolved. If you're experiencing problems with Citrix or with downloading software from the student software store, follow these steps.A.

Make sure that you give your instructor your Help Desk ticket number.i L A B S T E P S STEP 1Back to topRead the following business requirements closely to determine the entities and relationships needed to fulfill the requirements. The nouns in the paragraph will tell you the entities that will be needed. The verbs in the paragraph will help you determine the relationships between the entities.Muscles Health Club Database RequirementsThe Muscles Health Club needs a database to keep track of its members, their personal trainers, and the fitness classes they are taking.Employees can act as personal trainers for members. However, only certified employees can act as personal trainers. A member can work with only one personal trainer at a time.Members can take multiple fitness classes. Fitness classes are taught by employees who can teach multiple classes. Fitness classes are taught in one of the classrooms at one of Muscles Health Club's several locations.Each fitness classroom is designed for a different type of class (e.g., spinning, aerobics, water aerobics, weight training, etc.). It is necessary to track what fitness classes are being held in each of the different Muscles Health Club locations.STEP 2Back to topRun Visio 2010 either via Citrix or on your workstation.Click on the Software and Database Template group in the main window.Double-click on the Database Model Diagram Template to open a new file.Save the file with a name containing Lab2_, your first initial, and your last name as the file name (e.g., Lab2_JSmith.vsd). You will need to click the computer icon in the Save As window to see the different drives. Be sure to save the file to a local drive so it will be on your workstation.STEP 3 Back to topAdd an entity for each entity you identified in the requirements.Drag the entity icon onto the drawing area in Visio.In the Database Properties window, add a physical name to identify it.STEP 4 Back to topFor each entity, create a list of attributes you think would be useful to describe the entity.Select an entity in the drawing area of Visio.In the Database Properties window, select the Columns category.Use the table to add your attributes to the selected entities.Select one of the attributes to be the primary key (PK).STEP 5 Back to topSet the diagram to use crow's feet notation.On the Database tab, in the Manage group, click Display Options.In the Database Document Option dialog, select the Relationship tab.Select the Crow's Feet check box, and then click OK.STEP 6 Back to topDraw relationships between your entities.Drag the relationship icon onto a blank part of the drawing area.Connect the two ends to each of the two entities in the relationship. The parent entity must have a PK defined. The entity will be outlined in bold red lines when it connects to one end of the relationship.STEP 7 Back to topSet the cardinality of your relationships.Select a relationship line in the drawing area that is connecting two entities.In the Database Properties window, select the Miscellaneous category.Select the cardinality for the selected relationship.STEP 8 Back to topWhen you are done, save the file on your local hard drive and upload it to the Week 3 Course Project Dropbox.
