The aim of this paper is to design a software for examination committee work management using Visual FoxPro programming language, which is considered as one of the most popular and useful visual programming languages that supports Database Management System (DBMS).
This software is designed to facilitate the management of examination committee work to assist the documentation for the important data like card files and records and to retrieve examination information.
