Hi All- A little background first. My tables: ENGINEER EngID (PK/Autonumber) EngName (text) EngDept (text) CERTIFICATION CertID (PK/Autonumber) CertName (text) CertVend (text) ENGINEERCERTIFICATION EngCertID (PK/Autonumber) EngID (Number- long integer) CertID (Number- long integer) ExpDate (Date/Time) What I'm looking to do is to create a form. I need to be able to select the name of the engineer from a drop down menu, then select a certificatoin from a drop down menu. I will then input the expiration date manually. The probelm is, however, that in the EngineerCertification table, it wants me to input numeric values (since it thinks I want EngID and CertID, when in reality, I want to select the names of both of those). My newbie DB instincts tell me that I need to keep the EngID and CertID to keep the relationships in the table, but I have no idea how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated, as the boss is getting antsy. Thanks!
