    I am very novice at Access and have gone through most of the Microsoft online training tutorials...but in building my database, I feel there is a key point missing that will enable my database to work fluidly:

    I am buliding a project management database. At the end of the day, I need to be able to view (high level) details about a project, its budget, and completion status. I have created the main table for this with the appropriate headers. My main confusion is how to get all of the information to work in sync. I know have 12 tables created, each with specific breakdowns and any information (data) that would be entered regarding a project ( ie: Dates, budget, completion status, Person of contacts, location etc) I guess I'm having trouble putting the last piece of the puzzle together to get these tables to interact with each other. There are some fields that I need to auto populate (taking the information from other tables) I am just not sure how to go about it.

    Without detailed information about the tables it will be very difficult to help you.

    Do you have a question?

    cdr1869, welcome to the Forum.
    Normally you autopopulate by using Combo Boxes to select/display the related data from the Sub Tables.
    Can you post a Screenshot of your table relationships so that HiTechCoach or I can advise you.
