    Hi,

    I have an Access database that includes a personnel table, task table, and
    task to do table...in the task to do table, one can select a persons name
    from the personnel table and a task to assign to that person from the task
    table. For example, I have a field called task name in the task to do
    table which includes a combo lookup property link to the task table to allow
    the user to select a task name from the task table...

    Now, if I want to change a task name to a revised one, I go back to the task
    table and edit it so when I create a new record in the task to do table, the
    revised task name would appear in the combo box for selecting...however, how
    do I control it so I can get the PAST task to do records (already entered and
    assigned with the original task name spelling) to maintain the original task
    name and not change to the revised one? Do I have to create two separate
    task name records (old and revised) in the task table and then choose the
    revised name for new tasks to do records? (thus keeping the past data -
    original name spelling - with the tasks to do entered before the revision of
    the task name? (this might be confusing for data entry people however in
    which one to select in the future)

    Thank you very much

    Craig
