I have a small DB into which I have added fields for First Name and Last Name. I would like to put a combo box in the Employee Form for concatenated names, and a combo box for recurring percentages, all manually entered so far. Will that stuff up the manual records in the Pay record table?

Sorry don't really understand what you're asking. If you want to put First Name and Last Name togethor just make a query and make a new expression like FullName: FirstName & " " & LastName then you can base your combo box off that. I think this covers that Last Name, First
If you're asking if the 20% you typed in manually is going to mess things up later on when you enter a constant 20% option into the combo box, then no it shouldn't, although there's a chance human error could happen and mistype 30% or something, and that could screw with your pre-set options.

First - Cool name! I've not heard that before.
No, it will not 'stuff up' the records. Unless you update the record, you are just taking the data that is already there and displaying it differently either on screen or in a report.
You will still be pulling that data from your Employee form where you will have to enter the data the first time.
Sorry, only students may add comments.
