Automating Church Register

1.      Executive Summary

My dad is the secretary of our local church. Currently he is maintaining church records on paper/books. This application I am creating would provide forms for data entry/update and deletion of basic entities to be maintained for church. It is not a comprehensive solution but a small subset as a first step towards moving away from paper/books.

a.      Forms and basic controls
b.      Event Handling
c.       Control loops
d.      Variable/sub/function scope
e.      Basic spreadsheet capabilities
f.        Reading data from spreadsheet to form
g.      Writing data to spreadsheet from a form
h.      Searching for data within spreadsheet programmatically.
    Not in Scope
a.      Detailed validations and advanced controls ( like calendar control)
b.      look and feel
c.       Through/complete church management functionality

2.      Functionality

The application will provide the following capabilities
1.      Add  a family & family details
2.      Search for a family
3.      Update family details
4.      Mark a family as deleted/removed
5.      Add family members
