How to create a HR database in Miicrosoft Access part 2
A lookup list is a feature in Microsoft Access that allows you to select a value from a predefined list of choices, rather than typing it manually. This can help you save time, ensure data consistency, and avoid spelling errors. To create a lookup list in a Microsoft Access table, follow these steps:

1. Open the table in Design View and select the field that you want to add a lookup list to.
2. In the Field Properties pane, click on the Data Type drop-down menu and choose Lookup Wizard.
3. In the Lookup Wizard dialog box, choose whether you want to get the values from another table or query, or type them yourself. Click Next.
4. If you chose to get the values from another table or query, select the source table or query and the field that contains the values. You can also specify how to sort the values and whether to show only unique values. Click Next.
5. If you chose to type the values yourself, enter each value in a separate row in the text box. You can also specify how to sort the values and whether to allow multiple selections. Click Next.
6. In the final step, enter a label for the lookup column and click Finish.
7. Save the table and switch to Datasheet View to see the lookup list in action. How to create a HR database in Miicrosoft Access part 2.
