Command Button to Open another form

Posted on 2008-06-23

I have attached a screen shot with the relationships of the three tables that are included in my question.

So I have a Form 1 to enter data into the four Requirements Table fields (ID is an auto-gen number)
What I want is a command button on Form 1 that will close Form 1 then open and maximize Form 2.  In Form 2 I want to search through the People Table and find a record.  Then I want to be able to enter in several Roles via Form 2 that will create multiple entries into the Requirements People Table.  It should automatically enter in the ID that is autogenerated after creating a Requirement entry from Form 1, and it should automatically enter the unique Employee ID from the People record that you chose in Form 2.  It should enter these two things into the Requirements People Table for each role (different record) that is chosen.

So my questions are, what would be the VBA code for the command button on Form 1?
How can I set up Form 2 to accomplish this feat?

What table is form one based on? Will the unique number from form1 also be a unique number on form2?

Form 1 is based on the Requirements table, the fields that are entered are Section, Title, Applicability, and Description.  Then ID is simply and autogenerated integer, that is made once for each new data entry into the Requirements Table.  I created it that way so that I would have a primary key to like the Requirements table to the Requirements People table.  It will not be unique on Form 2, as there can be several different people linked with each requirement in various roles.  The Requirements People table has no primary key.  Let me know if you need any other clarifications, and thanks for the help.
