Since I'm just now starting to understand db normalization and using forms to lookup data from one table to reference it into another table, I now understand that my database has a lot of structural flaws, but, it's working. Or in this particular case, I'm getting it to work.
On a part of the database that is not too critical, (not a lot of interactive connections) I want to start to understand how I should have structured things.
My end desire is to have the Banks in the quniClassAndIndividual query display the bank letter instead of the primary key when I use the query in the report, rpt_Training_Employees.
In this Sample database that I've uploaded, I used to have a table level lookup in the AM_Operators table to the Banks table. I changed it to a textbox. So now, the bank column in the AM Operators table lists the primary key, which, as I understand, it should. My questions are several, since I'm making these changes:
1. Should I change anything relationally between the AM Operators and Banks tables?
2. Do I need to change any formats in the Bank fields (Text, Long Integer)?
3. What do I need to change in the query, quniClassandIndividual, in order to have it output the Bank letter instead of the primary key?
Thank you for your help in better understanding!
