    Question Unanswered: Printing problem

    I have a drop down list base on another drop down list. I created a report
    using the drop down list fields. The problem is when I preview the report or wants to print it the all the fields are blank. Does anyone have an idea what I did wrong?

    Interesting, the data was imported from excel. If I add new students then it's working fine. It seems to me the problem is with the drop-down box when you import data.

    It only confuses things when people are searching the forums for tips.

    Hennie,
    Unfortunately, I have nothing to add to assist in answering your question; however, I am always curious as to what others are doing with Brilliant Database. I very inquisitively examined your screen print because there are certainly some very smart people using this software and doing some amazing things with it!

    Combining threads is a mixed bag.


    As a general rule, people have more success finding information when one thread deals with exactly one topic, with possible links like you provided to related topics. This tends to "concentrate keywords" so that the thread is easier to find, and the links provide easy access to additional material if the reader needs that material.

    This thread structure leads to people finding exactly what they want faster because there is less data to retrieve (in terms of the size of the thread) and the links show where to find related content.

    As an extreme example, think about the structure of Wikipedia. By keeping each topic relatively "pure", it is easy to search for exactly what interests you. The links allow you to find related information if you need it. Imagine if you wanted to find out about Formula One racing, but there was only a generic wiki on "sport" and you had to sort through ballet, football, and jai-ali to find what you wanted!

    Organization is a key to finding the data you want. Keeping the articles small and related is the best way I know to organize data for easy retrieval.
