check out this example database i've attached! = )
in the underlying Standard table, there are 2 fields - FKStaffName and FKStaffName2
FKStaffName in the table properties has a lookup attached to the field.
FKStaffName2 in the table properties has a NO
lookup attached to the field.
the reason for the lookup is because FKStaffName (both 1 & 2) are populated with the meaningless PK from the staff table, and for the users i want them to see the name instead of having to key in the meaningless PK which they won't know.
with all the settings the same except for the lookup table,
FKStaffName ---> doesn't work ---> bound field has a table properties lookup
FKStaffName2 ---> works ---> bound field does NOT have a table properties lookup
1) how do i use a valuelist combobox bound to a tablefield with lookup property?
2) do yall NOT recommend using lookup for fields at table properties level?
regardless of the answer to question 2 guys, even if yall do NOT recommend using lookups at table level, i really do need or rather hope for an answer to question 1. reason being - if i stay away from using something, i want to know the problem, understand the issue, determine if it really is a bug or why it's not working. that will really help me understand Access better.
thanks guys!! = ))
