Database Programming and Administration: SQL Server, Microsoft Access, SharePoint, Visual Basic.NET, Perl script.
Clients: Wesley Allen Inc, Victorville Transit Authority, Research Affiliates, LA Care, Beta Offshore, T3 Micro, Minow CPA, and SelfEmpower.
Worked on over 9 projects, repairing corrupted databases and reports. Backed up databases and gave work estimates for new projects. Modified and created Forms, Queries, Tables, Reports, Modules, Macros, Stored Procedures, Cursors, Triggers, Database security through password protection, Visual Basic Functions and Subroutines. Backfilled Bloomberg financial data, back to December of 2007 into SQL Server 2008R2. Verified that the records where uploaded using SSIS, checked record counts, and noted any discrepancies in the data being pushed to SQL Server. I created time stamp code for a batch script that backfilled data (Insert and updated historical data). I created a Perl script to concatenate individual date logs into a full log (parsing all dated data files within a date range keyed in a prompt). I also created a 2nd Perl script to create a formatted Excel file, with font and cell color options and calculations, from that full log file. Setup clustered and non-clustered indexes, also worked on fail over cluster, upgraded the passive node that was not running a SQL Server instance then manually failover from active node to the upgraded node. Once the newly active node as set, upgraded the passive node, then put the newly upgraded original back. Used Query analyzer and optimization tool to find points of heavy processing and speed up performance. I also mapped out much of client’s pre-existing workflow processes. (Created Dataflow diagrams and entity relationship diagrams), I created VBA scripts and Visual Basic.NET code to import and export files to and from access and SQL Server. I created queries to search for member data, finding members that were not showing in the system. I created queries to merge updated data with daily other data received daily and add up data. I created a small electrical power conversion database from a pre-existing Lotus 123 spreadsheet which I converted and imported through Excel to get fields and calculations to create a database and function modules in Visual Basic Application code for each calculation, and macros. Worked with data from Covered California. Created A product inventory tracking database with barcode scanning and barcode label printing from a pre-existing Excel multi tabbed spreadsheet file. I created entity relationships among the tables with primary and composite foreign keys to be uses to lookup indexed data quickly. I used Visual Basic.NET to create reports and forms, linking them to their parent reports and forms. I used VBA code to query the tables and pull field information from multiple tables, to auto populate fields within forms, by scanning barcodes, for easier data entry. Form and report objects utilized: Textboxes, queried dropdowns, single and multiple section checkboxes, record navigation buttons. Microsoft Access 2013 and SharePoint2013 on windows 10 and Windows 8 Operating systems. Linking data tables from SharePoint 2013 within Microsoft Office365 on the Cloud to Microsoft Access 2013. Created a database from ground up to track workflow and change management for the expansion of multiple retail stores throughout the United States. Created queries, forms, macros, and reports. Forms and reports utilizing VBA scripts, Visual Basic(.NET), SQL utilized joins, append, update, Create Table, and Alter Table queries. Created detailed, uniformed reports with subtotals and buttons to manually refresh SharePoint linked data and database tables, and update the date last refreshed with was displayed on the main menu form and the report page footers.
Created technical Documentation in Power Point and Visio with screen shots and step by step instructions on the new features of the database and the preexisting features for the client’s records (where there was no previous documentation or data models), also made recommendations for future maintenance of the system. Also created graphs for the clients (Line graphs, pie charts with data tags connected to line totals and column titles)
