Hi. I am building an access database. The database is to track projects, so I have one table for the project details, and a different database for the details of each sub-contractor (i.e. a table for "contractors", another table for "Landscapers", one for "Woodworkers", etc). The project table has fields that link to these other tables so I can insert the name of the particular Landscaper, or particular general contractor who is working on that project. This all seems to work ok.
Then I built a report to spit out the data for each project. So the project name, number, owner name, etc is on the report, as well as the name / info for each sub-contractor that is selected in the project itself. Strange thing is happening on the report though. Every field for these people must be filled in, or nothing at all shows up on the report. If I fill in every single option, then it all shows up. But not every project has all these people - not every project will have a landscaper - but if any of these fields are not filled in - then just nothing gets pulled into the report. I'm not sure if it's how I built the report - and somehow all the fields are linked in the report, or if it's something to do with the table structure. I tend to think it has to do with how I built the report though. Any one ever come across this? Any ideas? Thanks!
