    Red face Is This the Nature of Access?

    For a winter project I thought I would catalog my CD collection and learn something about Access at the same time.


    At the present time I have two tables, "CD Titles" and "Name of the Band".
    The primary key for "Band" is an auto number,which I have used as the FK for each CD.
    I established the relationship as one to many and run a query,all is well.
    My issue is next to each and every CD is the name of the Band,so if the same group has 10 CDs the band name is also there,
    it seems a bit redundant to me. Is the what Access does or have I done something wrong?
    I understand the each CD needs to be identified by the FK but is there anyway to list all of the CDs under the same band name once?

    Thank you!!

    Richard

    To do something like you describe for visual/presentation purposes, you would do that in a Form or a Report, were you can use Headers and Footers, where you can "Group" records by a field (like Band name).

    For other purposes, you may want it repeated, so you could do queries on it, i.e. if you were querying all songs that contained a certain word, and wanted to see who sang it.
