Mini-Library Tracking System (Microsoft Excel)
For this project, the students are expected to come up with a mini-library tracking system for a small classroom shelf; the project will consist of at least 3 worksheets.
One worksheet will contain a list of at least 30 books. In this list the following information should be listed: Catalog Number, Title, Author, classification, and copies available.
Another worksheet contains the ledger of the transactions of all borrowers (only 10 possible borrowers at a time). Everytime a person borrows or returns, it will be recorded in another worksheet. It should contain columns for catalog number as the search key and the borrower's name, whether the transaction is to borrow or return the book and the date of transaction. (suggestion: use the code 1 for borrowing and -1 for returning).
There should be two summary features for this project: a search key for the book, a summary sheet of borrowerrs (output how many books are still with each user).
Computer project. I already have an idea on how to do the search thing but.. I still don't have any idea on how to do the second feature. Help?
Another thing, using vlookup, i can only search book descriptions using the title. If i search using the catalog number, it returns as #N/A. Am i using the wrong function? The **** teacher wants it that i can search using the title and the catalog number.
Thanks a lot.
