"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No.  You'll have to combine the sport and Yes/No strings

Expanding a bit more on aikimark's post:
(Typically one Participant can be involved in many sports and one sport can have many participants)
so this might be the next logical step in the design eveolution...

tblParticipants
pID (PK)
pName
pAddress
...etc

tblParticipantSport
psID (PK)
ps_pID (FK)
ps_sID (FK)

tblSports
sID
sName

But we need to know a bot more about this system.

If you want the labels stacked, you will need to use a continuous form.  You can make it look like a DS form but it won't operate the way a DS form does.  It will be fixed and unchangeable by the user unlike a DS form where you can resize columns and rows and reorder the columns.

Pat, ...but the design may still need to be refined, as it is not clear if Football:Yes, ...automatically means BaseBall=No,
...or if they can be in both

SteveL13,

As you know, the design you outlined is somewhat simplistic.
It treats Access as if it were a spreadsheet.
It will cause you major headaches if you ever need to Aggregate the sports
(How many in Baseball, ...for example)
PatHartmanCommented:
Jeff, I was in a hurry so I decided to ignore the spreadsheet design and simply answer the question but you are correct, it does look like a spreadsheet although I wouldn't assume mutual exclusivity.  Many people play what ever sport is in season.
Jeffrey CoachmanMIS LiasonCommented:
Pat, ...yes I was unsure as well

Thanks Steve, ...glad we could help.
