in most cases, question like this ends up to something different that was originally asked, perhaps this will be the solution

Set the relationship between two tables

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Ah, you didn't mention that this was for use in a form.

Consider a parent/child form (the Access form wizard can help you set one up), where you link the parent to the child on the ID column that is in both tables. If you have a main table and a second table whose records must always be linked to and ID in the main table, this is usually a good working design. Also known as main form with subform(s).

Have you looked at Rey's link on table relationships?

That is what I am using in Main/Subform....and pulling the info from the query.  I did look at the link...but it will not allow me to play the demo.  I will check it out when I get home.
