    I have an Access form with a subform for tracking the testing of applicants
    as well as current employees.
    The TestHead form is driven by the TestHead table.
    The TestDetails subform is stored in the EmployeeResultsTable.

    What I want is to be able to enter the header information when I know
    someone will be taking a test. I will not enter the details until later.
    At that time I want to enter the details I want all 25 questions to be
    populated in the subform and then be able to simply go down the yes/no check
    boxes to mark Correct/Incorrect.
    The population of that subform would require pulling the questions from the
    TestDetail table. Each entry to the EmployeeResultsTable creates one unique
    record.

    One way to do this is to base the Subform on an Outer Join query,
    linking TestDetail (to show the questions) with EmployeeResultsTable.
    Join the two tables by the question ID; be sure to include *both* the
    QuestionID from the TestDetail table and the EmployeeResultsTable.
