Creating a Database....Help!

Creating a Database....Help!

Creating a Database....Help!

I haven’t worked with Access for about 5 or more years so I have lost everything! I would like to create a very simple database but I am struggling. Basically I need the database to be able to print some monthly logs. Let me give some more details.

I have four employees that I assign cases to. I would like to be able to enter the cases and assign the employees. Every month I would like to print a “visit log” for each employee. This visit log would contain a family name, a client first name and a client last name. I would like to be able to pick an employee and it groups just their clients on one sheet.

For example....I pick employee “Jane Doe” and the report runs to show:

Employee: Jane Doe

Family Name, Member 1 Last name, member 1 1st name
Member 2 Last name, member 2 1st name

Family Name, Member 1 Last name, member 1 1st name
Member 2 Last name, member 2 1st name

I have created a table with the basic information however I cannot recall how to be able to run the report for the single employee that I have chosen. The report prints the clients grouped by the employees however it prints ALL four employees.

I know this is a VERY simple database but I am just having issues remembering how to do anything!

RE: Creating a Database....Help!

I would start with a form and add a command button that opens your report. Then modify the code that opens the report to include a WHERE CONDITION. Google "openreport where condition example" and come back here if you need clarification.
