Read Relational Tables by Carolyn W @ 5/5/2017
I've confused myself - If I have a student table, instructor table, and instrument table do I set up a 4th table with student to instructor, student to instrument, etc. or is that all done with queries?

They should have been bound but, for some unknown reason, they were shown in the form as UNBOUND. This was perhaps because I had been messing about, trying to make it work, more by trial and error!!!

When looking at the firled properties on the form I also saw that the date fields were showing as text!

Anyway, I started from scratch again by generating a query from the table. I then designed a form from the query, inserting combo boxes for both the ClientName and DeviceName fields. When I tried to use it nothing was showing at all in the drop-down list from the combo boxes.

Eventually, I re-designed the form, based solely on the table instead of the query, and Bingo. It is now working as expected.

I seem to have made a mountain out of a molehill and I'm still not sure why it didn't work based on the query but I got there in the end.

I tried creating a few simple tables to monitor the allocation of equipment to clients. It is returned at the end of two weeks and can then be re-allocated to the next course.
One table identifies the clients, with all personal details. The second identifies the equipment. The third deals with the actual allocation, recording issue and return dates, client name and identification of device. The three tables were connected using the relationships tool.
Everything appears to work until I start inserting data using the form. The first two fields; ClientName and DeviceName, work fine with drop-down menus. When I try to insert the dates in the two remaining fields I get a warning message on the Status Bar, saying  The value cannot be added to this new row until the row has been committed. Commit the row first, and then try adding the value.
I have tried changing the type of relationship link. I ve tried setting up a query and basing the form on that but nothing seems to work. The database is developing nicely and I ve used several queries and forms related to the ClientName without any problem. I can t see what I m doing wrong this time.

Are the combos bound?
