    Default Please help- zip file included

    I have been three days now trying to get this to work. Looking at help files all the alpha books i have and i still can not get this to work.

    I have included the zip file of it all.

    I have a customer form and on that form i have a button that when clicked should open up a form that lets me add the current customer to a special group.

    That's it the rest of it all works.

    I have a group look up working good i just can not get the current customer to be added to a group so i can look it up.

    I remade all the files so the Zip file is very basic showing just what is need for this to all work.

    I have all the tables linked as one to many.

    I keep getting a (no records in query) when i push the button to bring up the next form that lets you pick a group to add this customer to.

    Please see the zip file.

    I have this same problem on a few other things if i can see how to do this then i will be able to get the other ones to.

    Thanks

    Ed:
    Did you look at the sample template "Membership Manager" that comes with A5? That one does groupings.

    I just took a look and that dose not do what i need it to do,

    It is not using a button to open another form to pick a group from.
    I have most of everything working except the opening of the other form.

    See my zip file.

    I am glad you pointed out the Membership Manager i see lots of new things to check out in the Template folder in V8 i never looked at.
    I only looked in the sample folder.

    Thanks

    Ed:
    I moved your Customer form to the gb2 set (the same as your second form) and then redid the button to call up your second form and that made it work. See if that is correct.

    That is working thank you..

    But now i see another problem.

    I need to be able to let each customer be part of many different groups.

    Using the Alice customer every time i add her to another group the old one is removed?

    Any way to stop it from removing the other record?

    Two things: You will get this if you go back to the Membership Manager and study the sets. You will need to create another set linking your Type to Group to Customer. Two, when setting field names, I would suggest that you try not using the same field names in different tables, as when you do links it gets confusing as to which ID's you are using and which table they come from.

    Anyway, the Membership manager, I believe, shows the proper set to get Sally to belong to more than one type or group.

    Yes i have been looking at it (Membership manager) and i think it dose a lot more then what i have set up.
    I am going to try and move it in to take the place of what i have now and make changes to it for my use. I like all the reports all set up and everything about it even the memberships Gold, Silver and so on i can use that i hope for -- letting me know if a person is a Customer or prospect and turn a prospect into a customer..

    I hope i am thinking about that in the right way for it to work like that--Customer or prospect.

    Thanks
