    Re: pre made access database (acess00)

    The design of a form is highly dependent on the structure of the table it is based on. "Generic" forms can be created, but in general, they are not very attractive or user-friendly.

    There are, of course, many template databases available for all kinds of purposes. Microsoft Access comes with several of them (select File | New... and activate the Databases tab), depending on what you want there may be something you can adapt.

    Sample databases from Microsoft (Access 2000)

    Access comes with a sample database Northwind.mdb, providing examples of queries, forms, reports and VBA code.

    Microsoft has several very useful databases for download:
    Building Applications with Forms and Reports (contains 2 databases with help files)
    Sample Queries
    Sample Forms
    Sample Reports
    Sample Graphs (Access 97 format)
    Sample Code (Access 97 format)

    Hi Seaner,

    >>> so i can learn more stuff like querys and reporting

    Its useful to browse the Northwind.mdb too. If you copy the DB and explore its tables, queries, formas and reports it will trigger ideas for your own DB and you learn a lot of things by playing around with the data!
    Regards,
    Rudi
