Simple QBF in Access 2003 for simpleton

P: 1
I hope I can get some smart help for a dumb guy problem. I've created the world's simplest Access 2003 db for our Public Affairs Office. It tracks our press releases. There are several fields covering the date, type (drop down), subject (drop down), release (drop down) and network link to the acutal Word doc. I've even created a nice input form for the db. BUT, I need to create a QBF form so anyone in the office can look up releases by filling in, or picking from a drop down. I've tried to do it based on the Microsoft online guide, but I can't seem to get all of the drop down boxes to work correctly. Can anyone help me by providing a step-by-step (as if you were telling your kid how to do it) guide? Thanks.

cadurney,

I know this may seem very simple to ask a question without any details behind it, but in order to even begin to start answering your question, we have to know what you've already created and what it is that you're having problems with.

This forum is not ment to be a place to get FREE developer, it is ment to be a resource for people wanting to learn how to do things within the Office VBA and macros for MS Office suite.

What I would recommend to you, is try to break it down in the smaller peaces, and see what area you are having problems, and we are more than happy to assist you one problem at a time. What you're not going to find here, is someone that is going to develope your whole solution without you doing some of the homework here.

If you would send Table structure Example:

Table: TableName
ID Primary Key
FirstName String(20)
LastName String(30)
EntryDate Date/Time

as well as any query names and structures that you've created, as well as form names, control names, and any Code or macros that you've already created.

Then you can start asking "How To" on each item that you are struggling with.

I hope that helps,

Looking forward to your reply,

Joe P.
