In this project, you will append data from one table to another, modify the design of a table, and, after adding an Attachment field, you will attach a Word document to a database record. You will also create a table to organize special events offered to employees.

Save a copy of the Management table as the Employees table.
Copy the Trainees table and then paste the table, appending the data from it into the Employees table (the appended table will contain eleven records).
Open the Employees table in Design view. Change the data type for the Empl ID field to Short Text.
In the Empl ID field, limit the field size to 4 characters.
Add a new Monthly Salary field below the Annual Salary field, with the data type set to Calculated. In the Expression Builder dialog box, enter the calculation as [Annual Salary]/12 and change the Result Type to Currency.
Between the ZIP field and the Annual Salary field, add a new Certificate field to the table with the data type set to Attachment.
