    Unanswered: continuous form question

    Brand new to the forum. I am a first year it student and am trying to build a database for a small church library. I have a table that links to tables with borrower details and book details. it has bookID, borrowerID, date issued, and returned(boolean). I have a continuous form that uses a query to list all the books that are currently 'out' (returned = false) what I want is a button on each record on the continuous form that will change the returned value to false when clicked and I can't figure out how to code it. can anyone help?
    thanks in advance
    it's access 07 btw

    if you are following the look and feel guidelines for windows apps you may be better off using a checkbox control rather than a button

    using a button will require a bit of VBA behind ther button control, and I suspect you will have problems when trying to implememnt that in a continuous form design
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    thanks I've managed to get it going with a toggle button that changes the value to false then re queries the form.
    thanks again
