T#1 - Employee Name
T#2 - Month and Month # (Jan and 1, Feb and 2, etc..... Dec & 12)
T#3 - Calendar - Year (2010-2020)
T#3 - Shortfall - Employee Name, Month, Month#, Year, & Amount

Form #1 - Employee Name, Month, Year & Amount

My issues is I want the Month# to fill in based upon the Month selected in the form.  So when someone is in the form and they select Month, the coinciding Month# will fill in T#2

I'm a Newbie will need extra guidance.

In the before update event of MonthName, execute code to set value of month
Select Case MonthName
Case "January"
    MonthNumber = 1
Case "February"
    MonthNumber = 2

....
Case Else
   msgbox("Invalid month entered. Click OK to enter a valid month.",vbyes)
   Cancel = true
   me.undo
End Select

if your month field is a dropdown? (e.g. cboMonth), and your month# field is a textbox (e.g. txtMonthNum) then
on the change event of the dropdown add the following code

Private Sub cboMonth_Change()
  txtMonthNum=Month(cboMonth)
End Sub

You should not store data in this manner. You should instead simply store the Date, and then use the corresponding VBA and SQL functions to format that Date as you want.

For example, to show the Month as an Integer:

Month(YourDateField)

So if YourDateField contains the value "01-01-2016", that function would return a value of 1. You could do this on a Textbox in a Form or Report, in a Query, etc.
