Is it Possible create a sub-field or a table from a field ???

8 New Member
Scenario - (while transporting live chicken from supplier to wholesale customer)chicke ns will be loaded into boxes then to the truck, so each box has a different quantity of chickens Ex- Box 1 - 11 Chickens
Box 2 - 16 Chickens etc..
each an every box must be entered individually not as whole quantity, So is it possible to have field where the total boxes will be mentioned and within that field to have the record of individual boxes??

"So is it possible to have field where the total boxes will be mentioned and within that field to have the record of individual boxes??"

No, that is not possible, because then you will be storing two values in 1 field.
1) where the total boxes will be mentioned
2) have the record of individual boxes??

I would have a table (tblBoxes) that simply keeps track of each box on a truck: BoxID, TruckID, Chickens.

Then you count how many BoxID's for each truck, and get a sum Chickens for your total number of chickens on each truck.

Hope that hepps!

The counting would be done in a Query of course.

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,...
