    Ideas or how to??? (2000)

    Stumped....We have the option to pay a dollar to wear jeans on friday (it goes toward events for our facility). I have to keep track of people that have payed. I have just added a table to a DB that I have and it pulls the names and other info. Question, Do I have to name each column with the date or is there a way I can automate it like I can in excel? I'm also open for any Ideas that anyone might have.

    Thanks

    In Access, I would not set up the table with dates as field names. Instead, I would create a table with only two fields: the employee ID, and the date (or week number). If employee 1234 pays a buck on 5/17/2003, add a record with these values. Don't add a record if the employee doesn't pay. That way, you have a "lean" table containing only essential information. You can use queries to present the information; a crosstab query can display the info in a spreadsheet-like format with the dates along the top.

    <table border=1><td>EmployeeID</td><td align=center>Date</td><td align=right>1234</td><td align=right>05/17/2003</td><td align=right>1234</td><td align=right>05/31/2003</td><td align=right>2345</td><td align=right>05/17/2003</td><td align=right>2345</td><td align=right>05/24/2003</td></table>
