  1. Hi everyone, I am a illiterate computer user in an unfortunate predicatment. I need to create an online database for 500 user to search for research resources (mice) that are available at the insitute. There are two users, internal and external. Okay, I have designed a database that works in browse mode, links work and data can be inputed by the secretaries in each lab. That was the easy part. However, when I went in to web testing, all the merged fields disappeared. (First problem) How do I prevent this from happening? What have I done wrong. (Second Problem) How do I test the different access priviledges? I have no idea if they are set up properly for the for intented users? (Third Problem) Please explain as you might to a great-grandparent how I sent up the exclusion formulas so that non-institute people can only see files related to resources that are externally available. The field is a text field (Y/N) N marked records are to be excluded. Stupidly, I did a simple If (externally available) = Y, then ...but no idea what put next. Do I need a goto loop to sort all files? And do I need to include this condition on all screens (search and display)? Sorry to be so grammarian, but I have been struggling for two days with these questions (in Japan) and have a looming delivery deadline. thank you in advance for any advice you can provide. Sincerely, Bonnie Lee
