My question is probably quite simple for you more knowledgeable experts but has me stuffed.
I am building a db for work to record the skill levels on staff members in various tasks. I have chosen to give each a numeric rating so that I can average the various teams and the entire workforce thereby giving a reference in comparison for each person to both their team and the entire company.
Management however want a visual/written indicator in for form of being either “Incompetent”, “Needs Improvement” or “Competent”.
I initially placed 3 labels on the in-put form and using code for “Case” I was able to have the appropriate label visible when each record was updated. However, if I were to return to the form and index through the records the label appropriate for the last record would remain visible for all records until I updated one of them.
What I would like to have is a form with two related fields. Field 1 would be where I can in-put the numeric value and Field 2 would then update with the appropriate written rating. Would I need a 2nd field in the underlying table?
I await your wondrous solutions.
