    Entering Orders With Multiple Lines (A97)

    I am working on an inventory app for some friends.

    They need to be able to enter a customer order, and have it subtract the order from inventory and print labels for the items.

    I have the subtract from inventory and print labels piece but what I don't have is a good way for them to "see" the order as they are building it.

    Right now I have them select the appropriate items from dropdowns and hit "Add to Order" but they can't see, or revise, the order.

    I'm looking for a simple way for them to "see" the order as it's being built and possibly ammend it if necessary.

    Any suggestions? The simpler the better...

    Thanks!

    How do you work now ?
    You could use a main form for the order and a subform to enter the order lines, something like the order form in the Nothwind sample database.

    They have a pad of paper and write it down...

    Thank you, Francois, that is exactly what I think I need!

    I'll have to change my design a bit to make it work, but it will be well worth it!
