You need to set up security and different profiles for different people. that is the safest way. But an easier way is to have you enter data in one form and them enter their data in another form. In their form edit the properties of the fields that you want left alone. You need to set the properties to locked in the form where they do their data entry but leave them unlocked where you do your data entry. Just creat a second form by saving the first one under a different name. Also you might want to remove the fields from the tab stop list.

Microsoft access form problem


In the Design view for your form element (eg textbox), go to the Data Tab. Look at the options for:
Input Mask, Validation Rule and Validation Text. You can use any combination of these to force a user to enter something in the field. If you just want to check that the contents of the element has a non-zero length, then you can write an event (Events tab) to check the length of the values entered. If 0, then throw a message box and re-focus the cursor on the textbox.

Ms-Access


this discussion could go on for days (month? a semester at least?) but data is any piece of information you want to capture and save. a name. an address. a phone number. (actually they are examples of pieces of data - and whether you capture and save them or not they are still pieces of data). data "forms" a database when you save it (in the dataabase).

the database usually has tables representing related pieces of infomation.

Example:
the CLIENT table may have the following fields:
Client Number
Client Name
Address
Phone
Contact name
etc., etc.

the ACCOUNTS_RECEIVABLE table may have
Client Number
Invoice Number
Invoice Date
Invoice amount
etc., etc.

Notice how the CLIENTS table is "related" to the ACCOUNTS_RECEIVABLE table by the Client Number - hence the term you may have heard RELATIONAL database.

any more in depth please ask.

No available fields in form wizard


If you select the correct table from the drop down, the fields should be shown in the box. or keep the table open and try creating form. or create a blank form and on the right side you will get tables and fields, you can just drag and drop required fields

How we can create Forms & queries in access


For forms, open a data table in view mode, while there locate the forms setup wizard. For your first try just answer the questions the best you can for the wizard. When there are no more questions to answer wizard will create a form for you. From what you learn doing that you may get enough hints to make a form from scratch. Just keep in mind you always build a form from the fields in a table.
Now for the Query, start out the same way and use the wizard. Query to most folks means ask a question and get an answer. In access query is a way to present sub sets of data or ways to modify data in the fields of your tables.

Connecting html form to Ms-access data base


If, as I suspect, this is for a web form, then it effectively can't be done on a "proper" web server. This is because you cannot install MS Office on an MS server OS (e.g. Server 2003). You need to use MS SQL Server or MySQL instead. If this is for very limited use (i.e. only a few clients at a time), you can use XP running IIS but this is really not a good idea. The sedurity implications don't bear thinking about :) Linking a web page to Access can probably be done using ASP (never even thought of trying it - anyone else here know for sure?) If you are using a Linux web server then it's totally out of the question. Use Webmin or PHPMySQL to set up a MySQL database & PHP to code the linkage between the page and the DB. There are plenty of tools out there that will automate this for you, some of them Open Source and therefore free to acquire.
