Help a Newbie
Here's the task
I have an excel spreadsheet that has become to large to be used efficiently.
It really should be a database.
I track patients cholesterol levels, call them to change treatment and when it's time to retest.
I have only about 8 fields, but excel can't handle the 2000+ records efficiently.
Here are my fields:
2. Medical Record #
3. Last Test Date
4. Last Test Value
5. Contact Type (Phone, Letter, E-Mail)
6. Contact Date
8. Next retest date (This is a date calculated by the last test value and date)
If Last Test Value < 100 Retest Date = Last Test Date + 182 days
If Last Test Value > 99 Retest Date = Last Test Date + 50 days
I planned on having three tables:
Would Contain (MRN and Name)
Would Contain (MRN + Last Test Date + Last Test Value)
Would contain (MRN + Contact Type + Contact Date + Notes)
I was able to import from the Excel file, but it all ended up in one table (Members)
I was able to go to Manage Database and add the other tables (Contacts + Results) but each table contained all fields
How do I eliminate the unwanted fields from each table?
Can anyone help set this up?
