Default Help on forms - important

Ok, ive been looking around and i can neither find tutorials or posts about this before.

What im doing is trying to do is have a form. This form is pulling information from a table that has such data as job name, wirecenter and dates sent to specific people. Now the part i need help is this. I have a part where you need to select what type of job it is.
quote:1) Job type 1
2) Job type 2
3) Job type 3
4) etc
But the thing each job type obviously has different prices. Now when the select a job type (from a drop down) it pulls the prices and inputs it into the form without the user having to input it. Then when they save the form as a record, it updates the "final prices" into the table.

If someone has an example or send me some DB that could point me in the right direction or even a tutorial id be very much pleased.

You'll need a table associating job types with their prices, and then to use the DLookup function to pull that price into the form you're using. The examples here: (http://www.techonthenet.com/access/f...in/dlookup.php) should help.

When you say, "it updates the 'final prices' into the table," remember NOT to save the total of the summed prices. That is a waste of dB space. Always recalculate that when you need it.

Only save the individual prices if you need to store a historical value of what they were at the time of purchase and you know the prices per item may change later.
