My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use office 2007.  I am trying to create a simple book distribution database for my non-profit org and am stuck on the relationship linkages.  I attach herewith a Word 2007 document on the design that I have so far and also the Access 2007 file that I created to begin the project.   My present problem is the set up of the main form and the imbedded sub form.  Hope the experts can please take a look and let me know what I am doing wrong or how to correct it, and it will be wonderful if I can have the corrected access file.   once I get the initial glitches over and done with, then I can move on slowly but surely implementing one item at a time. Thank u.

Issue is not clear.

Think of the main form and subform as a sheet of paper with 2 portions.
The top 1 holds say a father name with fatherID, fatherName, ...
The second portion holds a list of children in rows.
fatherID, childID, childName, ...

The main form is linked to subform through fatherID as master fields and child fields.
