Access Lookup Column

Access Lookup Column

(OP)
I am trying to add a lookup column to a table and I keep getting the error message that "field can only be defined once."

Any help?  The column should lookup information from table in the db

Thanks

RE: Access Lookup Column

OK, are you creating a field using the lookup wizard?  If so, at what step are you getting the error?

RE: Access Lookup Column

in this situation, "LookUp" refers to a PROPERTY of the Field, similar to the Number / Type.  It is a tab on the properties which you see at the bottom of the screen in the table design view.

Yes, I am using the wizard and it is at the final step when it asks me "What label would you like for your lookup column"

No matter what name I choose it gives me the error message: "Can't define field more than once"

Thanks

Perfect, many thanks Katheryn
