You are required to design and implement a program in Visual Basic for use by staff who work for a car hire company. The company has at least six different categories of car distinguished by their power and degree of luxury. Cars can be hired for any number of whole days up to a maximum of 20. The basic hire cost depends on the category of car and length of hire.

In addition to the basic hire the customer may request certain extras which will increase the cost. These may include sun-roof, leather interior, CD player etc.

The program should at a minimum support the following functions:

· Allow staff to enter details of the hire (i.e. category, hire length, extras etc.).
· Calculate and display a deposit required (dependant purely on the category of car).
· Calculate and display the total hire cost both inclusive and exclusive of VAT.
· Alter details of a transaction - e.g. to change the period of hire.
· Reset the screen ready for the next customer.

NOTE : Details of hire should be saved to disc but you are not required to check the availability of particular vehicles for particular dates.

For extra marks you may choose to include other functions - possibilities include:

· Ability for staff to change the charges for the various categories of car.
· Ability for staff to change, delete or add the categories of car dealt with.
· Ability for staff to amend details of extras.
· Produce a printout detailing the cost for the customer.
· Keep a total of the number and value of transactions dealt with during the day.


1. Design documentation - Sketches of form design, control and variable lists and process logic (in Structured English or VB code).
2. Brief instructions (no more than 1 page of A4) on how to run and use the program.
3. A list of any bugs or weaknesses of your program.
4. A printout of your program code.
5. A virus-free disk containing all the files necessary to run you program. The program should run directly from your disk. The program should be written in Visual Basic V6 unless by prior arrangement.


The following factors will be taken into account when marking your work:

· Range of functions supported by the program. Credit will be given for functions beyond the minimum list in the specification and for the use of VB features above and beyond those covered in class.
· Usability of the program. Is it pleasant and easy to use?
· Reliability of the program.

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
