How to show contact info for multiple customers in access

Posted on 2011-10-12
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I'm creating a database with a navigation control drop down menu. When someone selects a node from the drop down it displays all the details about the node including which customers are on that node. There can be multiple customers on the node. I have it displaying all the customers just fine in the form. I added the field straight from the table to the form with the add existing fields option. When I added the contact field however it only displays the first customers contact. How do I get all the customers contact to display when there are multiple customers instead of just the first customer in the list?

    I didn't really see something related to what I'm doing here. I have a navigation drop box that shows a list of customers based on the node selected from the drop down. I need all the related information to show up for each customer. Right now the rest of my boxes only show the info for the first customer in the list. the customers are coming from a lookup field that allows multiple selections.

    Then your first question should be why the combobox is not even working
    (Why it is not allowing you to move to the selected customer's record.)

    So perhaps posting a sample database might be more helpful to avoid us guessing at exactly what you have here...

    Then I am sure any expert will be able to assist...

    Sample database notes:
    1. Back up your database(s).
    2. Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
    3. Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
    4. Remove any records unless they are relevant to the issue.
    5. Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
    6. Remove any references to any "linked" files (files outside of the database, Images, OLE Files, ...etc)
    7. Remove any references to any third party Active-x Controls (unless they are relevant to the issue)
    8. Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
    9. Compile the code. (From the VBA code window, click: Debug-->Compile)
    10. Run the compact/Repair utility.
    11. Remove any Passwords and/or security.
    12. If a form is involved in the issue, set the Modal and Popup properties to: No
        (Again, unless these properties are associated with the issue)
    13. Post the explicit steps to replicate the issue.
    14. Test the database before posting.

    In other words, a database that we can easily open and immediately see and/or troubleshoot the issue.
    And if applicable, also include a clear graphical representation of the *Exact* results you are expecting, based on the sample data.
