Hello. I am new to Microsoft Access 2007 - learning by trial and error. I do not yet know how to do programming and was hoping to do the following without programming. Would appreciate any help/insight.
Essentially I am trying to make a form that has three different combo boxes. These are key fields from a table I have of all company employees. The key fields I want to query on are Division, Position, and Grade. Division has a choice of 5, Position a choice of 3 entries, and Grade a list of 4 choices.
I got this to work in Excel using the Auto Filter but now am trying to figure how to do this in Access. I would like the user to pick any of these three combo boxes to use as sort criteria.
For instance, the total table list is 100 employees. When you select Org A from the Org Combo Box, then you have only 50 employees that meet the criteria. If you select Engineer for Position you get 20 of the 50 and so for. Or you could start with Position and have 75 listings for Engineer that comes from multiple Divisions.
Hope this makes sense. I have just been unable to get this to work. I have a form made from the Table with all of the key fields (name, address, ..), the combo boxes for Division, Position, and Grade but can't figure how to link the combo box selections to a query and then update the form.
I know I sound like a beginner - I am!! Any help would be appreciated. I told my boss I would have a simple form to show him on Monday. I may have leaped before I looked.
