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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
