    I made a table with the fields of Student ID, name and marks

    Then I made a form consisting of the same fields of that table

    I want when i double-click on the form a question comes out asking me to
    insert the sutdent ID. How can I do it?

    I am using Access 2003

    Thanks

    What do you mean by "insert"? Do you want to search or store? If you want
    to store then use a text box bound to the "student ID" field. If you want
    to search then you could code it but personally I'd opt for the built-in
    "filter by form" utility or <CTRL> + F for "Find".

    Regards,
    Keith.
