Hello please can anyone help me with microsoft access.
I work as a software support consultant for a medical software company and we have an sql server database with all the bugs etc but the website is awful.
I have made myself a small access database with bugs that i deal with frequently.
I have made several tables :- Bugs, Module, Status, Patch, KDErrors.
The Patch table is purely to hold patch numbers e.g. 126.96.36.199. Now i was thinking that i would like to use this table twice, 1 to show the DetectedPatch number and 2 to show the ResolvedPatch.
I must point out that i haven't used access for years. I have bought a couple of books from amazon but they haven't arrived yet :)
Now in the Bug table i set the BugID, BugNumber,PatchDetectedID, PatchResolvedID, BugName, BugDetails etc. In the Patch table i have PatchID and PatchNumber.
I'm trying to display the patch detected and patch resolved on the same form but am stuggling with the relation between the two tables.
1 patch can resolve many bugs.
1 bug can be detected in many patches.
In the Bug table i tried creating 2 relationships from the DetectedPatchID to the PatchID and the ResolvedPatchID to the PatchID. Alternatively i could put the BugID in the patch table and create one relationship that way.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
