Abstract : A knowledge based expert system has been designed to allow a relational database to be queried by a user who has no training on database management systems. A relational database was chosen as an efficient method of storing information about Cub Scout Packs, the Dens that comprise them, the people involved in the administration of each Pack as well as the members of their Dens, their leaders and parents. The database can provide administrative information about the packs or dens, either collectively or individually as well as information about the pack staff or den members. Since more than one member of the same family is usually involved in the same pack, the in formation common to all members of the family was stored in a table separate from the information that was unique to the individual people. The fact that a person could hold more than one position in the pack made it necessary to creat tables to establish the relationships between the pack and its staff and between the den and its members.
