I'm using Access 2003. I have a relationship set up and I want to create a new form in form wizard using the two related tables. I've created this form before in the past and it has worked. But it is not working this time. My students and I are getting the error message "wizard unable to create form". What's the problem?

Under the pages tab in the Database window is a wizard that will walk you through creating the page. You can then copy the code or tweak it as you need to. If you do this and want to continue to mange using forms however, you may want to split your database. that means load all the forms in one file and link them to the tables in another. There is a tool to do this automatically under TOOLS > Database Utilities > Database Splitter.
You need to create 2 tables. Create one table with just the Center Number, County and Center fields, using the Center Number as the primary key, lets call this table Center. Then create the other table with all the other fields you need, lets just call it the Main table for now.
Then create a relationship between the Center table and the Main table using the Center Number for the relationship. The relationship should be a One-to-Many from the Main to teh Center table. When creating the form, you take the fields from both tables. When you input the Center Number, the County and Center should be automatically filled in.
It seems that you have your Database(.mdb) file is created in Office 2003.... thats why you are unable to open it in 2007.... I faced the same problem.... then I came back to 2003 in order to use our database......
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
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.
