I am assuming that your Assignationofsubjects table has a field for a Teacher ID and a Subject ID.

I would do the following:

Have the user select a teacher from a combobox or listbox (you should populate the combobox or listbox with this info from the database) and then allow the use to select 1 of three options: Print Assignation* of Subjects, Add Assignation, and Delete Assignation.

If the user selects Print Assignation of Subjects, you need select all the records from the Assignationofsubjects table that have the selected teacher's Teacher ID in the Teacher ID field.  Once you have all those records in a recordset or dataset, you can do whatever you want to with them: display them onscreen, use them in a report, etc.

For Delete Assignation, just like before, use the selected teacher's Teacher ID to find all the corresponding records in the Assignationofsubjects table.  Display the results in a listbox and let the user select which one(s) to delete.  Delete them from the recordset or dataset and then update the database.

For Add Assignation, let the user select a subject from a combobox or listbox, and then use the Teacher ID of the selected teacher and the Subject ID of the selected subject to create a new row in the Assignationofsubjects table, placing the selected Subject ID in the Subject ID field and the selected Teacher ID in the Teacher ID field.  Update the database with this info and now that teacher will be linked to that subject.

I am assuming that you know how to use ADO to perform the various database operations mentioned above.  What I have given is just a basic plan of action for doing what (I think) you want to do.

Just let us know if you need anything else :) .



I would use the word "Assignment."

I think the info I provided should be of some help to emont, but whatever you all decide is fine with me.
