    Unanswered: How to make a panel with linkfied text??

    I'm a newbie to access.
    Right now, I'm currently establishing a database for the company.
    Basically every job the company does has a job number, all the info about the job is linked to the job number. is there a way i can click on the job number and have options on the side that are clickable and link to different tables, such as the p.o table or so?

    Since someone told me i can just link a program to the database and make a panel with linkified text, but since i've never programmed access before, can someone tell me how??

    Thank you

    p.s i do know visual basic language

    Linkified text sounds sooo ameteurish, stop using the term!

    A panel is just an area on a form, perhaps inside a tab control or a rectangle. You can make command buttons or text links, whatever you want.

    My biggest concern is this:
    I'm a newbie to access.
    Right now, I'm currently establishing a database for the company.
    R E C I P E - F O R - D I S A S T E R

    Seriously.

    If you are new to access, then PLAY until you are not.

    Your employing company should be using professionals to build their system... if they want it to work right and for years.
