|MS Access 2010 - Prompting user to save changes|
The default behaviour for a Microsoft Access bound form is to
automatically save the record whenever the user does the following:

Therefore I thinks it may be redundant asking the user to confirm if
they wish to save.

It would seem you want the results in rows rather than in columns. One

I was able to do it with an Append Query:

This appends the actor into the Movie record's "Actors" field, based
on the movie selected in the "Select Movies for Actor" form. I then
just run this query from a command button on the form.

The way you can do this is build a query that joins in all the child

your case you could sort by DESCENDING PK [ID] of the CHILD table. So
you can sort by any column, and just sort descending on the column you

You can accomplish this with a simple group by clause.

then the 64-bit versions of Access will be able to recompile the VBA

I think the challenge here is the open-endedness of the problem you

I think that's all you should do. While there is the potential of a

different. VBA is between -32,768 to 32,767, so

The Right() function allows you to take as many characters from the
right of the string as you want. In this case, you want 2 less than
