ACCESS: Continuous Form, List Products Show Multiple Categories for Each Products.

1 New Member

Hi, i'm new in access, just a view days, this is my first post.
Sorry for my bad English.

I have 3 tables.

product_id (primary) | product_name | product_price
1 | short | 100
2 | skirt | 120
3 | cap | 50

tbl_product_cat egory_xref (no primary)
category_id | product_id
1 | 1
2 | 2
1 | 3
2 | 3

category_id (primary) | category_name
1 | Men
2 | Ladies

Before, i want to list all product using continuous form, and using listbox to store multiple categories.
First, query the product, then in listbox source from query the categories taken from txtproduct_id (textbox).
The plan is like this image (i used PhotoShop to edit the image to make easy to explain), then i get error, and confused.

Then i read that many people say we cant do that in continuous form.
But i must use continuous form. It will take long time if i check the product 1 by 1 page.
Actually i dont need to edit the product's categories, i just want to know which categories the product is.
Any idea how can i show each product's categories?

Maybe create first query tbl_product_cat egory_xref and tbl_category to get category_name and automaticaly create temporary new

table (i dont know access programing) that combine category_name with "," separated each same id
SAMPLE NEW TEMPORARY TABLE (can be replace every time we open the form):
tbl_product_cat _temp
product_id | category_multi
1 | Men
2 | Ladies
3 | Men, Ladies

Then second qury for continuous form that displaying all products and connect to tbl_product_cat _temp,
and store this category_multi into textbox. Is this posible?
I really need this solution, and really hopeless...
I dont know where to get help. Nobody can use access in my area.
Thank you in advance.

First, a suggestion.

Tell us what you are trying to do.
Help us understand your problem/situation. We do NOT know your application nor data.

Don't tell us how to do it, just tell us what you're trying to do.

Hi All, * PREMISE * I'm creating an Access form with 150 items subdivided into 20 categories. Multiple categories (and items) can be selected so my user wants checkboxes. All of the options need to be visible at the same time so no dropdowns (combo boxes) and no scrolling lists (list boxes). I will use tabbed sheets with logically grouped categories (and their respective items).

Hello, We are in the process of examining our current main application. We have to do some major changes and, in the process, are questionning/validating the use of MS Access as front-end. The application is relatively big: around 200 tables, 200 forms and sub-forms, 150 queries and 150 repports, 5GB of data (SQL Server 2000), 40 users. I'm wondering what are the disadvantages of using Access as front-end? Other that it's not...

Hello All, These one may be a bit tricky, and what I'd like to do may not even be possible. I would love to hear any ideas you guys have for solving this. Here is the situation: I have a form that displays the high-level data for a set of records in continuous forms mode. I have a simple command button that will open another form with the details of the selected record.

You can tell the categories from the subcategories by the field hashighercat - the 40 categories are null...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
