I am creating an Access 2016 database. The database has 4 tables:
tblTopics where you can have many Topics. Each Topic has Sub Topics where you can have many Sub Topics. For example, a Topic might be Circular Reference with various Sub Topics to Circular Reference. tblSubTopics is the second table.
Sub Topics can have many Issues. For example, a Sub Topic to Circular Reference might be Finding Circular Reference. tblIssues is the third table.
Finally, an Issue(s) has a Solution(s). tblSolution is the fourth table.
I would like to have the ability to where I can enter in the Topic, Sub Topic, Issue and Solution. I do not want to save any data (create a new record for each table) until I have finished. As I understand a form can have only 1 defined Record Source. I need 4 Record Sources, one for each table. Therefore, what are my options? Can I have multiple subforms or do I need to use the Tab control? Or is there another way? Is there a solution(s)? I have attached the Relationship Diagram for this database that might help Relationships.png
