I have created an MS Access 2007 database that contains many questionnaires (forms).
A small sample of this DB is attached. Please see YMRS table and form.
On several questionnaires I need to have the total of the answers saved in the Total Field in questionnaire (forms) and the corresponding tables. A number is associated with each answer and this answer for each question is chosen from a combo box. Please see attached example from the database.
The position of the chosen answer in the combo box is saved in the table and not the # that goes with the answer. For example, if the answers in combo box are 0,2,4,6, a choice of 4 is saved as 3 not 4. I would like to save the answer to the question not the # of the position in the drop down. This is important because I need to calculate the total of all the answers.
For example, if answers to Q1 = 4 and Q2 = 6 then total = 10. Based on position in dropdown Total now = 3 + 4 = 7. You can see the problem.
How would I save the numerical answer and not the position in the combo box in the table corresponding to each form? Thanks, EEtest.accdb
