This research involved creating a conductor database for building high field magnets for scientists and engineers at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) to select appropriate materials that enable the magnets to safely achieve the desired magnetic field. Microsoft (MS) Access was utilized to build the conductor database for analyzing and organizing large numbers of data. Additionally, test data organized in Excel is easily compatible with MS Access. Access also allows for cross references between relatable tables to reveal relative data and an approach made by combo boxes was used. The conductor database contains necessary material data (tensile and fatigue test performed since 1994 in MagLab) used to build high field pulse and resistive magnets.

Scientists and engineers at the MagLab can use this conductor database for quick, organized access to the data.
