    having different display controls (eg list, combo list, text) in the same table

    I'd like to create a form with multiple columns and rows. Some of the options will allow the user to input text, other others will permit them to select from a list (one or more response options).

    I've provided a screenshot to help explain.

    I am relatively new to access and aware of a list or combobox (display control) and where i can place a value list in the row source type. However, I can only make single columns.

    Therefore, Id like to add a column that allows me to have text options, another column that shows a list, another column for a combo list, and one for a checkboxes.

    How can I create a column that allows for a checkbox, another column that is a drop down list, and a third that is a combo list in the same table?

    I've attached a screenshot to help explain the type of form I am hoping to create.

    Have you built your tables -- this is the starting point of building a RDBMS. Once this is in place then you can build your form based upon the fields in your table. While it may appear that you have columns in your form, each item is an individual control and must be inserted and formatted as such. In forms there is no formatting of columns or rows as they don't exist.

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not crosspost your question on multiple forums without including links here to the other threads on other forums.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I have created my tables. So each column would be a separate variable and I would put them together in the same table in my form?

    There are no columns in a form. Each item in your perceived columns should be a control bound to a specific field in your table. Each form is bound to only a single table. If you have multiple tables you will need to have sub forms that are bound to the tables and referenced/linked to the main form. It might be helpful to build your form using the form wizard and moving controls around in design view as you require.
