    FORMS (2000)

    I am creating a database for online banking customers. the form will be used to add new customers. New customers may have 5 different account numbers. I need to be able to list the different account numbers and tell what type of account each is. How do I list in a form. Also how will this effect my table <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    If 1 customer can have 5 accounts, you will need two tables; Customer and Account, with a one to many relationship. The common field for linking them would be something like CustomerNumber.

    The form could be a main form (Customer data) with a subform (Account data). Place a field in the Account table called AccountType - you can store the type of account here.

    Thomas's reply is to the point. Your question suggests that you are new to database design, so I suggest you also get a couple of books on Access, starting with the O'Reilly book, "Access Database Design & Programming", by Steven Roman.
