Access 2010 Question

I have a form with 9 buttons on it.  What i need to do is when you click on any of the buttons on form1 it will open form2 and only show the records based on that button.

if button1 on form1 is for experts then it will open form2 and only have the records for experts available.

if button2 on form1 is for novice then it will open form2 and only have the records for novices available.

and so on.

Is that possible and how do you do it?

Yes.  In the Click event of each button, write VBA code that opens the form, and then filters on the [SomeValue] field for all rows where that value is 'Experts' (change the names to meet your needs)

DoCmd.OpenForm "Forma Name", acnormal, "[SomeValue]='Experts'"

btw 'Access 2010 Question' is a poor choice for a subject, as it doesn't say anything about your question, and since you posted it in the Access zone we already know it's about Access.  
'How to open forms in VBA and filter' would be much better.

i think this is a complicated question if you want to do it effeciently

You would make a click event as stated above for each button, then set the dataset to the table accordingly


IE


Sub Button1click (...bla) handles button1.click
  Form2.show()
  Form2.grid.datasource = datasource1
end sub

Sub Button2click (...bla) handles button2.click
  Form2.show()
  Form2.grid.datasource = datasource2
end sub

..etc

ok i entered the code as follows:
DoCmd.OpenForm "IA Control Details", acNormal, "[IA Controls]![Control Level]='MAC 1 Classified'"

it returns all 1310 records instead of the 173 it should be. I have created queries that show me how many records there are for each level.

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.
