Trying to create a database with enrolled student information and want to query students enrolled for a specific semester who then returned for a different semester - but on a larger scale - who were retained 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year, etc. Trying to have all my semester data in one table and some type of lookup table where I can put the beginning semester date and all the queries would "work" and "know" what the 2nd year would be and 3rd year, etc.

MS Access 2007

    How many tables have you created there? You mentioned, all semester data in one table, what did it mean? Did you keep subjects names/marks/semester wise marks/years in altogether? If so, it is better to create different tables for each semester with relative information and then create links with each other. This way you can keep better control on tables.
