Automatically append records

I have a pretty standard database with pupils studying Maths at different levels. Each level has different assessments. I would like to know how to automatically add all the assessments for a level automatically to a pupil marks table when I add a pupil to a level table.

So if pupil1 is taking Higher Maths and its has 3 assessments prelim1, prelim2, prelim3. I would like to automatically add these.

I have attached my database as I am not even sure where to start, I am guessing it has something to do with appending data but have never mastered that.

Any help appreciated as I usually just add these manually.

Regards

Tricia

You can do it with query (Query1 in sample). To prevent duplicates be added, create complex index in your table:
index
0

Will be better if you change in Assmts table Alevel field to FK from table Levels

I get a data type mismatch when I try and run the query.  IE will not let me attach the file but all I changed was to chnage the alevel filed in assessments to lookup the levels table..thats what you meant by a FK right?
