Each item on your check list should be a separate record.
There are many options for how you could work with such a record. The simpliest is just to set up a list view layout to list all your check list items, but a portal listing the items is also possible.
The key will be in how you incorporate such a list of items into the rest of your database. You might have a table of audits where there is one record for each audit. A table of audit types that links to a table of audit items. Yet another table might list all the audit responses to each item for a specific audit and so forth.
It all depends how how sophisticated a design is needed to do what you need here.
Oops sorry for the last post. The picture and the rest of it didn't get through.
Anyway, I am new too and after much tinkering on creating a safety audit (aviation) checklist managed to design one; and as PhilModJunk(!) had suggested it... created tables and all (with a 300 plus checklist items.
The only problem now is that the checklist response that I created for each item is duplicated for a new checklist. Meaning to say for example:
If I were to select a new record for a new audit, the previous audit response is replicated for that particular checklist automatically in the new record. Any help???
