need a calculation for a library


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends

I've made a library data base with book titles being the records.

At the bottom of the page I created (borrower) info.

I have a list of people who could be borrowing books from the library. I put their names in "Define Value List".

How can I make the list so when I select the first name, the last name and other info about the person appear in other field automatically. confused.gif

First name will not be unique unless your library has rules about having only one Robert as a borrower. Therefore, your plan will not work.


You need to use a unique key for each borrower such as a borrower ID. Then you can select a borrower ID and display related information such as their name.


However, I think you have some structural issues from what you describe. I would be setting up a borrower file rather than just a value list for borrowers.

Thank you for your responce David.

I figured it out last night at 12.00 Am.

I made a file with all the informations and saved it as "attachement". In my Library file I set the field option for these fields(first name, last name, tel, address, email) as "Look up value" from the file "attachment".

And believe it or not it works like a charm....
