Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is possible, but here goes; I'm trying to build a db for my wifes business and one of her requirements is that she needs to view all her staffs hours on one form while making them editable. The staff work rotas are changed on a daily basis.

(Background: She runs a centre for children with disabilities & ASD and offers an emergency care service which means she can get clients coming in with little or no notice at all and has to re-schedule staff to accommodate, hence the reason the rotas are changed on a daily basis)

I built a time sheet entry form which utilized a 'temporary' table to get around the rules of normalization, which kind of did the job for an individual employee, but when it comes to adjusting the rotas she needs to see all her staff and associated hours. I'm struggling to figure out how to build a form to view & edit all employee's.

I stand a better chance in building this in Excel and then importing it into access, but would ideally like to keep it all in Access 2007.

Can anyone offer any help, suggestions or guidance on this ?

I hope I have explained it clear enough,

Many thanks
Colin

Hi Colin,
This is one of those nasty problems where you need some sort of crosstab to view the records but they can't be eidted in that format.
One solution that I have seen is to have a piece of code transform that record / day for you, let the user make the changes, and then rewrite the data back into the normalised tables once finished.
See if this helps... http://www.vb123.com/SA2006-04.pdf

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the reply and appologies for the late response (Long Bank Holiday here in the UK).

The article looks promising, though I must admit I'm a bit lost with some of the coding. I have currently managed to layout a timesheet/rota form using queries which write to a temporary table and my idea is to submit them at the end of the week. This idea has it's pitfalls, so know doubt I'll be looking at the VBA solution in the article.

Thanks again and I'll keep this issue posted for future reference.

Cheers
Colin
