Drop Query or Table onto Form Link 
Timothy Smith

Have you seen an issue with the new Access where in form design it will not let you drop a query or table on to the form?  I am having this problem and I cannot seem to be able to figure this out.

I've never seen that before, but that's not something I ever do. I never put tables or queries directly into form. I always make subforms first and use those. I just did a quick check in a sample database and it's working OK for me.

Anyone else having this issue?

Fill In Fields Link

Which course will explain how to create a combo box to fill in fields? I created this box, but I dont want to enter an employee number first.  I want to use first name or last name to find the record, then select it and have all the fields filled in.  Every time I do it, it fails.  Its like it cant use text as the look up.  Help!.  Where do I find the answer to this?

I would need to know more about what you're trying to do in order to answer this question properly. Are you just dealing with one table, or are you trying to pick an employee and fill in their information in some other table, like a time sheet? Sounds to me like its the latter. If that's the case, you need to learn about relationships. I start covering that in the Expert series. I do a little bit of using a combo box to select a value from another table in Access Beginner 8, but you really want Access Expert 1 for all the details. I see you've only completed up to Access Beginner 3, so I would say just keep learning. We'll get there.

Hi all! I am a new student.  Above was actually my question. I am trying to use this for. To track employees that call out the day of their schedules work day.  I use the comp box to search the data base with all employee records. I want to search be first name, instead of employee number.  I then need the records to populate in this form with First Name, last name,  employee number, department, etc.

Does Your Web Site Use Access? Link

I have a question.  Is your web site using Access?

I used to use Access MDB files for storing data on the web server, but I upgraded to SQL Server as a back-end about a year ago. I outgrew Access which is just fine for small sites. but I've got over 40,000 customers now, and I could have 100 people active at any given time. Too much for Access to handle.

Was the active users the only problem, or was there a limit on the amount of data which could be housed?

I have setup a list of investments, must like the Customer list in your Access Training.  When you select an investment you get a detail form for that investment.   There is sub form for updating the price of that investment.  Im trying to create an append query that will add the list of investments to the table so I can use one form to add the new price for each investment each month.  Looking for ideas
