Access form for test

Good afternoon expert,

Created an exam simulator using Javascript to study for an exam called ITIL (Info Technology Infrastucture Library)
It works well but it would work better if
1. The questionsa were in different order every time I opened the Exam form.
2. The answers to the questions were in different order every time I opened the Exam Form

That is, Question 2 would be question 5 the next time I open it. And answer one to question 5 would be answer three to question 5 the next time the test is opned.

Finally the form attached displays the four possible answers. How could I put a button or user controlled event handler that would display the correct answer?

I know this is a lot of questions but if you could just give me the concept I think I can fidgure it out.
Or if you want me to I could rework it into a series of questions.

Thanks.

You'll need to use and unbound form instead of a bound form and populate the controls randomly...

Example attached. Try opening the frm_Test a few times and look at the On Open event VBA code

Hello mvasilevsky:
Well maybe I over estimated ny abilities in saying that I could figure it out.
I read about unbound controls is that the same an unbound form?
If so then how does one get the recordset into the form if it is not bound
to the data
'Unbound control  A control that doesn't have a source of data (such as a field or expression) is called an unbound control. You use unbound controls to display information, lines, rectangles, and pictures. For example, a label that displays the title of a form is an unbound control.'

Thanks.

Hello mvasilevsky:

I thnik I see where you are going. Although there are two forms in the MDB sent one
is the form I did and the other when clicked oin returns
Run-time error '-2147217838 (80040e52)
Data source object is already initilaized'
But I could open the VBA. It looks like to variables are created.
One, rst,  is the recordset and the other (x) is an interger used to maniplulate
the order of the questions. It looks like x is set to be the rescordset minus
one and plus one. Can't see why you would add one to the interger and
then subtract it.  Then the variable is muliplied times a random number
and incremented. What does that do?
What dos the xpression rst.Move x -1, 1 Do?
What is Me!
Thanks.

Make sure you have the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library Referenced (Tools -> References)

x is the random number generated to pull a random record.

rst.move x-1, 1 move x-1 records, starting with 1
Me! is a generic reference to the current form, in this case frm_Test

HTH,
