In the attached db, please open form "Start Up" Select "Elaine C" as the Analyst and "3" as Billing_ID. Then click on the button "Open Audit Entry."

The first tab in "Audit Entry" has the field [Audit_Start]. Please offer how I may enter the [Audit_Start] once, but then it is populated for all corresponding 10 rows for that Analyst and Billing_ID combination?

Thanks.

What I have deon thus far is to create a query that aggregates all the fields, create a new table, then insert this as a subform. But there must be an easier manner...just do not know how to do so. In the table resulting from the query - I had the field [Audit Start].

The downfall with this method is that I have to update the query independent of the Source table to ensure that all information is captured.

Thanks.

I also use the DoCmd.OpenQuery once the Audit_Start is entered to update the Subform table, but this does not fill in the specific fields needed.

And yes, I am still getting caught up to speed with VBA, but unfortunately I am not learning fast enough to get my project finished. I know there are ways of doing this without the VBA, but I am trying to gain as much speed as I can with VBA...

Thanks.

I can manage this by creating a Subform based on a Query that aggregates the values. Please let me know if you do not have the time to assist.

Generally, I piece together code from solutions, and work with this, but in this case, have not found any close to what I am looking for.

Thanks.

Please offer your suggestions on how to close this question.

This database is above my skills, and as much effort as I have been putting into this trying to get caught up to speed, it is just not enough. I initially thought I could manage, but I really am biting off more than I chew. I can build databases, and have just a basic knowledge of SQL and VBA, but not extensive by any means.

I have consulted with colleagues, and we are all now aware of how far my skills can contribute, and I will proceed with this database at the level that I can. Time to fold my cards.

Please confirm how we can close this question. Also, I truly thank you for all your assistance to this point - you have no idea how wonderful you have been.

I am going to go ahead and close this and award you points. I have been biting off more than I can chew, thinking that I can gain speed quickly, but not at this speed.

I have let my colleagues know my limitations, and they are supportive.

Thanks.
