Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time.

Building Forms Based on More Than One Table
Many forms are based on data from more than one table. A form, for example, that shows a customer at the top and the orders associated with that customer at the bottom is considered a one-to-many form. Forms can also be based on a query that joins more than one table. Instead of seeing a one-to-many relationship in such a form, you see the two tables displayed as one, with each record on the “many” side of the relationship appearing with its parent’s data.
Creating One-to-Many Forms
There are several ways to create one-to-many forms. As with many other types of forms, you can use a wizard to help you or build the form from scratch. Because all the methods for creating a form are helpful to users and developers alike, the available options are covered in the following sections.
Building a One-to-Many Form by Using the Form Wizard
Building a one-to-many form by using the Form Wizard is a 10-step process:
1. Use the More Forms drop-down on the Create tab to select Form Wizard.
2. Use the Tables/Queries drop-down list to select the table or query that will appear on the “one” side of the relationship.
3. Select the fields you want to include from the “one” side of the relationship.
4. Use the Tables/Queries drop-down list to select the table or query that will appear on the “many” side of the relationship.
5. Select the fields you want to include from the “many” side of the relationship.
6. Click Next.
7. Select whether you want the parent form to appear with subforms or the child forms to appear as linked forms (see Figure 5.54). Click Next.
8. If you select the Subform option, indicate whether you want the subform to appear in a tabular format, as a datasheet, as a pivot table, or as a pivot chart. (This option is not available if you selected Linked Forms in step 7.) Click Next.
9. Select a style for the form; then click Next.
10. Name both the form and the subform and click Finish.
The result is a main form that contains a subform.
Building a One-to-Many Form with the SubForm/SubReport Wizard
You can also create a one-to-many form by building the parent form and then adding a SubForm/SubReport control, which is found in the Controls group on the Design tab of the Ribbon. If you want to use the SubForm/SubReport Wizard, make sure that the Control Wizards tool is selected before you add the SubForm/SubReport control to the main form. Then follow these steps:
1. Click to select the SubForm/SubReport control.
2. Click and drag to place the SubForm/SubReport control on the main form; this invokes the SubForm/SubReport Wizard.
3. Indicate whether you want to use an existing form as the subform or build a new subform from an existing table or query.
4. If you select Use Existing Tables and Queries, the next step of the SubForm/ SubReport Wizard prompts you to select a table or query and which fields you want to include from it (see Figure 5.56). Select the fields; then click Next.
5. The next step of the SubForm/SubReport Wizard allows you to define which fields in the main form link to which fields in the subform. You can select from the suggested relationships or define your own (see Figure 5.57). Select the appropriate relationship and click Next.
6. Name the subform and click Finish.
The resulting form should look similar to the form created with the Form Wizard. Creating a one-to-many form this way is simply an alternative to using the Form Wizard.
