problems with "before update event"
I have searched the forum and have not had any luck finding a similarly related post and I hope someone can spare a moment to help out.

I can't get a Before Update Event on a form to execute correctly in a function. The error I get is:
"The expression BeforeUpdate you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: The object doesn't contain the Automation Object 'AuditTrail' "

As part of my attempt to find out why, I opened up the mystical Northwind MDB, created an identical function, tried it out and it works fine.

I used the documenter to compare properties of the forms in my mdb versus the Northwind MDB and didn't see any big show stoppers there.

The only difference I can see is that in my mdb, On the Form properties, Event tab, Before Update line, I try to enter "AuditTrail()" and the system replaces what I type with "[AuditTrail]".

In the Northwind MDB it doesn't replace what I type and keeps it as "Audit Trail()".

Does anyone have an idea if the [ ] is causing the problem and if it is what property setting do I have to change or whatever to make it work?

Northwind - how to load
In my 2000 version of Access, Northwind was easy to find. According to the book in 2010, I should be able to click on Sample Templates and see several databases including Northwind.

Nothing is listed behind this tab. What do I need to do to load these samples (hopefully, without loading a security number - this caused great difficulty originally)? It seems that using the 2000 version will not the most beneficial.

Also, where can I find out what those little icons mean?

Adapting Northwind, Subform Error
They adapted Northwind to do a shirt purchase db. on the Orders/Order Subform, when they select the "Color" listbox a parameter prompt keeps appearing asking for the current ProductID.

He has to type in the product number to get the set of colors specific to a shirt selection.

Another thing that happens, is when a new row is added to the subform, no matter what new shirt is selected, the previous selected product ID "sticks" and only the filtered colorselections from the first selection appear.

but then again I don't know Northwind that well,

Nothwind database
One friend has recently asked me to work out for him a sale and inventory management system, which would certainly need more in depth functions and macros development. I thought that by loading the northwind database and with the help of specialized literature, I would come about all the problems I might face. The Northwind database is limited. Indeed some of the forms cannot be opened in design view, why? In particulars "products"and "employees".
