Welcome to the Microsoft Access Forum. Access is by far our most popular topic here at Computer Learning Zone. This forum is for everyone to read but only students (paid customers) can post here.

Having problems with your Access database? Here are Rick's Rules if you want help.
Rule #1: Before you ask for help with a WEIRD problem, meaning Access isn't behaving normally, then make sure you run down the Access Troubleshooter which covers solutions to many common problems. If you have a weird problem and you don't say "yes, I ran down the Troubleshooter" then I'm just going to point you to Rick's Rule #1.
Rule #2: Before posting your question, check to see if it's already been answered. You can use the Search feature to look for keywords. Save me some time having to only point you to another post where your question has already been answered.
Rule #3: If neither of those things help, make sure you post exactly what you're doing, what the specific error message is, what you've tried, and any other details we might need to help you. Don't just say, "I get an error." Tell us what the error is and what you're doing. We're not mind readers. I wish. Also, be sure to read this article on Context. It matters!
Rule #4: Links to files or images on other sites are NOT allowed. Don't try posting a link to your database on Dropbox or any other web site. If you have someone specifically offering to help you, you can email them your database. You can upload screen shots here using the Upload Images link provided on comments. Post your question, then you can upload a screen shot.
Rule #5: I encourage students to help each other out. I love seeing that. However, don't take advantage of someone else's good will and ask to send them your database for free tech support. I don't work on databases for free, and I don't expect my students to either. If you're looking to have someone else fix your database, you can post a request for service in the Access Developer Network. Not here.
