getting a syncronised drop down

P: 22
Hi all,

I have a data base that works quiet well ((considering I built it lol)) its a simple relationship data base that I can fill in, Info like staff details, IT assets, phone extension etc... its basicly an IT itinary so when a problem arrises we have all info at hand for our IT service desk..

now Im neededing to have this data base in web access data page also..

Right my drop down box in my data base basicly alows me to select a name (user# ID) and from it it poulates the rest of the form with the infomation on that selection.. name, department, IT asset number, ((all info basicly))

but heres the problem.. when recreating it so it is accesable via web the drop down shows all the names but dosnt populate the rest of the info ((dosnt retrive)).. infact on click it dosnt even show in drop down selection box...

any help is most welcome thanks...

I'm no web developer, but I suspect that what you are seeing in Access itself, but not in your web-facing application, are items that are part of standard Access functionality.

When using the Access database as a back-end system (simple data repository) you do not get the same features as when it is used as the front-end too. These would need to be provided by your web based code. I'm afraid that is a question for another forum I expect - depending on what you are using to code that in.
