    comparing two sets of results

    My database collects school exam results and one form I use shows how many students got each grade for any particular exam. An example is shown below:

    Because of the large quantities of data, the process is currently:

    Extract all relevant data to a local table then display results in a form.

    However, my Line Manager would like to be able to compare two sets of data so I am thinking of having two tables similar to above set side by side. The user would be able to select both groups by combobox.

    Should I use subforms? Or can anyone see a wiser alternative?

    see this link for basically the same question https://www.accessforums.net/showthread.php?t=79383. Personally I would go the subform route

    Thanks Ajax. Looks like a subform then with two local tables.
