In Reply to: Tables and Acrobat files posted by Nick Jaros on January 31, 2002 at 17:08:54:
: I am the director of a non profit substance abuse program who is trying to put together a simple program to keep track of our clients. Here are my two problems (that I am sure have simple answers):
: 1- I have two tables. The main intake form lets us input all the clients information with a unique contract number. I have a second table for the clients cost of program information with some of the information found on the first table. This has a incramented number field that gives a unique number for each client. What I want to do is to open a form to edit the second tabel and when I enter the clients contract number, the program automatically inserts the rest of the clients information the is also found on the first table. I have tried to open the Paradox table and set the Contract# field to "Lookup" with automatic update all fields but this does not happen when I enter info on the second table.
: 2- I have created a directory filled with Adobe Acrobat files. I have created a form with buttons named for each of these files. I need to click the button and have the Acrobat document print to my printer.
: Any Ideas? I am at a loss

First of all make sure that botn the tables exist on the form (for testing sake) - join the index of the second table to the primary index of the first table (MasterSource/MasterFields) if this is done correctly - if u add the fields into the TTable(Fields Editor) - you can then drag the fields onto the screen!!! - if ur still struggling - email me the source and i'll fix it with docs.....
