Creating Muliple Records from single Form

We are Setting up a Standards database for customers. We have a data entry form for our administrator to add new customers. There are 5 different standards that apply to customers, some require all standards, others might have only 2 of the five, or any permutation of the 5.

I want to be able to add the new customer with the form and have check boxes against each of the 5 standards, when the form is saved each of the selected standards creates a new record against that customer.

Can you help please?

You'd have to tell us more about your database design.

I'm assuming that you have a Customer table, and that you have a Standards table, and that you then have a Customer_Standards table (i.e. a Join table).

If so, then you can create a form based on Customer_Standards and embed that form in the Customer form. Users could then select the Standards for each customer.

You could also do this with an Option Group, but then if you added more Standards, then you'd have to modify the interface - not a good idea in most cases.

Sorry Scott

I'm not 100% au fait with the scoring system. No reflection on the answer just a misunderstanding. Kind Regards Mark
