Hi I have been using Alpha 5 for a reasonable while now, but mainly associated with single tables & collection of data from instruments. I am now designing a system which will be a relational model, 5 tables linked by various fields. My initial problem is the display of child records on a form, i do not really want to use a browse, whci I have found to be cumbersome can any one advise please. based in North Cheshire
Thanks

Welocome to the UK section of the Alpha message board.

Please post your technical question on the main board where you will get more help.

Two points, 1: it is not good practice to link more than three tables together for data input. The other side is true for reporting the more tables the better.

2: If you dont have a browse on the form then you will only be able to view one child at a time.
