This is an example Access file for assigning a job to employees. Also this sample file provides two security levels; Admin and Regular User. The user with Admin type only will be able to use the Admin Page tab to assign a job to employee. The admin user will select the employee, enter a number of jobs to assign, and select a number of days before job due. Job can be assigned to one employee or many employees. It can also be assigned to employees evenly. For example, we assign 10 jobs to 5 employees. Each employee will receive 2 jobs.
Highlight functions in this file include:
#1 Assign Job
The Assign Job form is located on the first tab under the Admin Page button of the Navigation Form. The Admin Page button will be enabled only for the user with Admin Security Level. This Assign Job form will display the # of number of jobs available to assign at the left corner. There are three subforms to display on this form:

- # of Job Assigned Today subform – This subform displays the list of employees with numbers of job assigned to each employee today.
- List of Job Assignment – This subform will list all jobs with the number of days before they are due. The user can sort on each column with the built-in filter feature like MS Excel.
A)Assign Job without Selecting Employee
The error prevention is programmed to this form before assigning the job. For this example, the user enters 5 jobs to be assigned to employees, but there is no employee selected under the Select Employee list. The error message will pop up stating “There is no employee selected to assign a job to!”
B)Assign Job without Entering a Number of Job Assignments
In this example, the user selects two employees, but forgets to enter the number of jobs to be assigned to employees. The message will pop up as “Please enter a number of job to assign.”
