Entering comments into database


New Member
Jun 30, 2008
Hello I want to thank you for your time for reading my question


I have a database which i send RFQs (request for quotation) to my supplier which they add their prices and what not but at the bottom of the form they can also add comments (memo field) and so can I but when I do a merge of the two unique copies of the database it over writes everything in that field I want to merge not over write is there a way to do that in access?

Something simple I was thinking of adding a buton to add comments but that doesn't solve the concern that it would over write the comments volume is low right now for the RFQs but I would want this automated so that it would save me some time.

Is two comments fields an option? One for you and one for them - they can't edit yours and vice versa. Just a thought......
