hey guys, i can't remember how to do this exactly and can't think of the keywords to find it on google, but Access has this feature where if two tables are joined through relationships, when you open one table and select one record, it will show you all the other records from the other table that are linked.

how do i enable this feature? thanks guys!!

You would link Contacts.ID to Purchases.Contact_ID with a one to many relationship where contacts are the one and purchases are the many.
