Unanswered: problems with connection parent-subform
I have the following problem in access 2010 which I just currently use. I'm working for a NGO and they want me to create a access DB based on information they have given me.
I'm a bit annoyed, because this thing that seems to me quite straight forward won't work, but maybe I overlooked something.
With the wizard, I create a form in order to connect one or more sub-sectors to an existing sector.
After I reached the last sector, I was still able to move ahead. After I clicked on the next button, the sector id and name field turned empty, but I was still able to fill in the fields
of the sub-form and save without any problems. And yes when I checked the sub-sector table new records had been created without the foreign key: sectorID.
This happened even though I checked the integrity box while creating the table relationships.
So after that I changed the sector-form properties 'Allow Editions', 'Allow Deletions' and 'Allow Edits' to 'No'. I checked on the individual sector form and everything went fine: after the last record, the 'next record' button was grayed out. So I created a new form/sub form and based on that sector form I had just changed.
In this case it still went wrong: after the last record, I still was able to scroll further. Then again the first sector showed up again and after attaching some sub-sectors to it,
the sub- sectors table showed new records but again without foreign keys!
To be clear: the only thing I would like the user to be able to do is to link sub-sectors to existing sectors and they're not allowed to create, edit or remove any of the sectors!! Does anyone knows a possible solution?
