I am working on an Access form.  One table contains litigation, another table contains attorneys.  I created a form that has different pages.  On one page I need to put information for both attorneys (ours and opposing).  I am not sure how clear I am making the question.  On the first page of the form you choose both attorney, but on another page I want to pull their addresses/phone numbers from another table.

I think from your description) and the corresponding field in the child (an attorney ID in the Attorneys table) ...

Ulitimately I beleive that will be your solution .... Sub-Forms ...

I agree with dataAdrenaline idea of using subform. I also suggest the use of tab control so that you can select which information you want to see
