    I've set up a form in Access that pulls information from records in one table
    to be used in another. It asks for a job number, then pulls up that record.
    I need to be able to type in the empty fields located on this form. Does
    anyone know how to do this?

    How are the two tables related? You should almost certainly NOT be
    copying fields from one table and storing the same data in another
    table; the whole point of a relational database is that you enter and
    store data ONCE, and then use queries to look it up.

    Please explain what you mean by "to be used in another". I suspect
    that a Subform will be appropriate, but don't know quite what your
    structure is!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
