    Wasim,

    Those "address" fields are all part of the query that is the form's source recordset (Orders qry; I really wish that Microsoft would eschew using spaces in the db object names of its templates and samples--it's a horrendous practice).

    So, when you select a new customer ID, the form simply recalls the info from Row X of the source recordset.

    Glad to help, Wasim. Part of why I try to answer questions for other people is that I find that it is excellent way for me to learn as well.

    For the most part, I am self-taught. Generally, I bang away at an application for a few hours, learn most of what I need to know, and then track down specific "extras" as the need arises.

    Some tips:
    1) Just explore the application. You can learn a lot just by playing
    2) Browse the help files (both Access UI and Access VBA. Sometimes they give great guidance, and sometimes not, but you should always at least start there
    3) Check out www.msdn.com. It can be a little intimidating at first, but there is a ton of great info
    4) Go to boards like this one, www.vbaexpress.com, etc. Read other peoples' questions and answers. Try to answer a question or two yourself
    5) Set up a few of MS's delivered db templates, and explore the form/report designs and code. You can pick up some nice techniques that way
    6) I have a bunch of books, but I only consult them rarely (when I need highly topic-oriented info), The Access Developer's Handbook (2-volume) is the bible, but it is a bit much for beginners


    For general questions, please ask them here and not by email. If you need help on something beyond the scope of what you could expect from a free forum, my email address is in my profile.

    Best regards,

    Patrick

    Wasim,

    I saw that post, but Access's security model is the weakest part of my Access skill set, and so I generally stay away from those questions. (Indeed, my strong opinion is that, if you need security for your app, you are much better off going with a stronger platform like SQL Server or MySQL.)

    So, it is doubtful I will be able to help you much on the security questions.

    Good luck on your project!

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
