I've been working on a newspaper sales database where I should record the number of newspapers sold at a given Outlet for every Date record.  I know I don't have the joins right.  When I fill-in the Load No. I need all the Outlets related to that Load No. to pop-up in the repeating panel, but it's not doing that.  Also, when I create a new record in the main database, the same data pops-up in the repeating panel from the previous record.  I think I must need an alias to join to or something.  It's very confusing since I don't have much experience in doing this.  Please help!  Here is what I have:

     DATES(main)     OUTLETS(detail)     SALES(detail)
       Date                  ID No.----------------ID No.
       Load No.----------Load No.                Draw
                                Outlet                    Return

                      **SINGLE COPY SALES**

Load No.(DATES)__________    Date:(DATES)____________

Outlet(OUTLETS) Draw(SALES) Return(SALES) Sold(SALES)
Ted's Market       35                  4                    31
The Bait Shack    15                  2                    13
Shop N Save       80                 12                   68
