Sorry DRiM...didn't notice the new thread...I added a new comment on your old one.
Never seen Access working?...you would be stunned at what you can achieve (eventually). One of my favourite tricks is to have forms re-design themselves under program control, depending on how users respond to questions.
There is an easier (and cheaper) way.Go to your local Library (or go to your local council site, find libaries, and log on). Search for 'CD Access XP'...This will find a interactive learning guide on CD. For the cost of 60pence, you get a lot of knowledge. Terry
I am studying for the ECDL. I have to add data to a TABLE using a FORM. When I enter data into the FORM, it does not show in the TABLE until I shut down Access and re-open the database. How can I get it to appear in the TABLE without closing the database?
When I had to get to grips with Access I bought 'Access 97 Bible' by Cary N. Prague & Michael Irwin. It's quite a tome and perhaps a bit expensive, but very useful when getting into the nitty gritty of designing tables, queries and forms. etc. The book comes complete with a CD containing sample databases. It has been updated as each new cersion of Access comes out , but I don't know the current title of the book.
Hope this is of some help.
