in total, it took me months to get to this stage (task 6), but that was because I stalled out at Microsoft Access and waited to finish the workshop before continuing. my issue was creating the relationships.
I completed the Access task in 15 minutes today. whilst multitasking, I read through the html module and skipped ahead to task 6, which I am doing now. the section explaining how to code a table could've been more clearly illustrative.
