    Question Unanswered: Create a Form with table subform


    First time posting, I'm an Access beginner in need of your guys' help with an Access 2000 problem I'm having.

    I'm trying to create a Form that contains a table subform that, for each record in the main form, allows me to fill a new record in the table subform.

    I have one table called Client, that has Client ID (primary key), Account N, Name, Last Name, Social Security. I also have another table called Products, with Products ID (primary key), Name, N Products bought in 2008, N Products bought in 2009, N Products bought in 2010.

    I've attached a jpeg that shows what I've got, the Client Form, that has the Products table subform visible.
    But right now, when I go through the main form records, the Table subform doesn't move to a new record so that I can fill it, it's always the same one.

    Can you guys help me?

    It sounds like the subform is not properly linked to the main form. Check the properties of the subform and make sure that the parent/child fields are correct.

    Don't bother imo. Your table design is flawed. In 2011 what are you going to do? What about 2015?

    Also, your relationships look like a mistake.

    Fix your table design first,... there is no sense building forms until your tables are right.
