    Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate the time you take to help
    up access-challenged folks.... I took a couple access 2000 basic classes some
    time ago, and now i'm rusty, as well as still green. I will be more specific
    about my needs here.

    I am setting up a database for a man that does trust appraisals. Attorneys
    send us work which involves appraising properties for their clients. I can
    already see that I will need to make a table for the attorneys (called
    "customers") and one containing information about the attorneys' client
    (maybe called "trustees") so that I can make a relationship between the two
    showing which attorney belongs to which trustee and so on.

    Right now I'm trying to set up the "trustee" table and occasionally a
    trustee has mulitple properties that need to be appraised. If I am
    understanding correctly, I need to make another table (maybe "additional
    properties") that relates to my "trustee" table. Or, can this be all done in
    the "trustees" table without having to make a new colum for every new
    address....OR should I just put all the address relating to the "trustees" in
    a seperate table......Think I bit off more than I can chew....Whew.....Thanks
    again for your help
