I want the user to select via a checkbox for which employees to print a report.
I understand that on a continuous form checkboxes need to be bound to an underlying field.
I want the boolean field bound to the checkbox to reside in a WORK table, that is on the front end mdb.
I'm having trouble with the SELECT/JOIN:
a) Have 2 tables: LOG and WORK
b) The LOG table has as its last column: an autonum field,
that would relate to the WORK table's primary key.
The WORK table's fields are:
ForeignAutoNum Number Indexed-No duplicates
c) I linked the tables using Tools/Relationships
The LOG table has rows. The WORK table is empty.
Hoped for sub-goal when viewing the SQL JOIN query results set:
When clicking on checkbox in the query results set:
the checkbox would be populated -and-
the associated automnum from the LOG table would be
populated in the query results set
so that if I would open the WORK table, I would see a
record with both fields populated.
The sql query below displays the correct rows, EXCEPT:
Getting the following error, when trying to click into a
checkbox, that is included in the results set of a query.....
" cannot enter value into blank field on 'one' side of outer join"
Any ideas or guidance or URLS would be so appreciated....
thank you so much in advance, Sandra
