Access Link Parent Child Same Table

Courses > Access > TechHelp

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to show you how to indicate which customer record is the Primary, and which are subordinates. This has a lot of uses. A school, for example, may want to have records for children and one for the responsible parent who gets mailings. A company may have multiple contacts but only one gets the invoices, and so on.

Kristine asks: "Do you recommend creating a separate record for two customers who share the same address but whose other information, such as DOB etc is not shared?  I ask because there should be only one mailing label and only one invoice for two or more customers at the same address but other reports may be individualized."
