showing data

P: n/a
Hello together!

How would you manage the following termin:

I got table "A" and table "B"
I have to show most of the fields in "A", an one columm in table "B".

But table "B" can have several entries which belongs to A.

The output should be something like this

A.field1 A.field2 B.sumOfTheField

Steven Miller value1

value1 and value came from two different rows out of tableB

Any idea?

Thanks a lot!

Lookup subforms in help this is what you need :

Subforms: What they are and how they work
A subform is a form within a form. The primary form is called the main
form, and the form within the form is called the subform. A
form/subform combination is often referred to as a hierarchical form, a
master/detail form, or a parent/child form.

Subforms are especially effective when you want to show data from
tables or queries with a one-to-many relationship. For example, you
could create a form with a subform to show data from a Categories table
and a Products table. The data in the Categories table is the "one"
side of the relationship. The data in the Products table is the "many"
side of the relationship - each category can have more than one

The main form and subform in this type of form are linked so that the
subform displays only records that are related to the current record in
the main form. For example, when the main form displays the Beverages
category, the subform displays only the products in the Beverages

When you use a form with a subform to enter new records, Microsoft
Access saves the current record in the main form when you enter the
subform. This ensures that the records in the "many" table will have a
record in the "one" table to relate to. It also automatically saves
each record as you add it to the subform.

A subform can be displayed as a datasheet, as in the preceding
illustration, or it can be displayed as a single or continuous form. A
main form can be displayed only as a single form.

A main form can have any number of subforms if you place each subform
on the main form. You can also nest up to ten levels of subforms. This
means you can have a subform within a main form, and you can have
another subform within that subform, and so on. For example, you could
have a main form that displays customers, a subform that displays
orders, and another subform that displays order details.
