Q: It seems there are movies missing in the course which should explain how to enter products in the Order table. How do I do this?

A: The lessons in this course are only somewhat cumulative. The database is built throughout the title before getting to the relationships and referential integrity, but not every step is shown. This is one of those courses where using the exercise files is recommended. The course would be very long and repetitive if I demonstrated the same technique over and over for every step in building a database.

Take a look at these videos instead.
Chapter 2: Planning and designing your database (concept)
Chapter 2: Creating and editing tables in design view (building the order table)
Chapter 2: Creating a lookup field. (This one uses Customer lookup as the example, but I believe this technique answers your actual question. You would use the same procedure to add the field that calls up the list of products.)

Q: In the Chapter 6 video "Using Design view," we work with the Combo Box Wizard. When I click on the Combo Box then click the
 location on the form, it does not start the Combo Wizard. Please advise.

A: Click on the Data tab and make sure one of the tables or queries appears selected in the Control Source. The form needs to be bound to a table or query before you make the combo box.

Also, Access is extremely finicky. When you're looking at the Properties window, be sure to click in the little box in the upper left corner of the form, between the vertical and horizontal rulers—as noted in the screenshot—before creating the combo box.


Q: It seems there are steps missing in the course. The file I built myself by following along doesn't match what's on screen. Why not?

A: The lessons in this course are only somewhat cumulative. Each movie is a standalone explanation of a technique or feature. The database is built throughout the course, but not every step between the lessons are shown. The course would be overly long if the author repeated every step in building a realistic, functioning database. However, the missing steps are variations on the techniques you've already learned. Also, this is one of those courses where using the exercise files is recommended.
