    here's the situation:
    I've got two tables with a One-to-Many r/ship. In the Form for inputting data in the 'Many' Side of the relationship i want to have a drop down box (ie combo box) based on values from the PK from the 'One' Table (this value is the link between the tables ie Foreign Key).

    The problem is that the Data in the 'Many' Table are created before the 'one' Table. So when creating new vlaues in the combo box a new row will be created in the 'One' table. Does this make a sense? lol i think i've just about managed to confuse myself!! :rolleyes:

    I am not enforcing Referential Integrity, and have tried creating a Macro that creates a new record with a set value of the newly typed value, but that did'nt come close to working!!

    Any ideas/thoughts?:confused:
