    Does anyone know anywhere where i could get an example of an advanced access database, to give examples of using advanced features of access, such as in form design, and construction of calculations in queries?

    The Northwind (is it called that) example database included with access includes form design....and I'm pretty sure it's got a couple of quries with calculations in too.

    However most advanced access databases are sold as a product - so you have to stump up the cash to have a look (and they often lock out the design views so it's hard to get a really good look)

    edit: if you don't have the northwind sample database you can download it (from bill) http://office.microsoft.com/Downloads/9798/Nwind.aspx

    Yeah, thats the problem.
    I want to take a look at one as something i can refer to in my project for computing, and they are either useless, or you can't get to see the workings of them.
    Thanks for that though. I'll take a look at it, but i'm sure i've heard of it from somewhere before.
