how to select customers from a table

I have a table that multiple users will use at the same time.  It basically
consists of a list of customers names.  I want to be able to select multiple
customers from that table when I am creating a new "project" so when I print
out the project report, the "customers" list on the report is the customers
that were selected from that table.  How can I do that without locking the
table from other users?

Since each Project involves many Customer, and presumably a Customer might be
involved in many Projects, you need... another table! ProjectInvolvement,
let's say, with fields for the ProjectID and the CustomerID. You could fill it
using a subform on the Projects form, using ProjectID as the master/child link
field, and a combo box to select the customer. The report would be based on a
query linking all three tables, to pick up the project information from the
project table, and the customer name (and other individual data) from the
Customers table.

Structure your tables as John describes and base the report on a query 
joining them.  To select multiple customers and open the report create an 
unbound form with a multi-select list box of all customers with CustomerID as 
the hidden bound column, but showing the customers by name.  To do this set 
up the list box like this:

For its RowSource property:

SELECT CustomerID, Customer FROM Customers ORDER BY Customer;

For other properties:

Name:                  lstCustomers
BoundColumn:    1
ColumnCount:     2
ColumnWidths:    0cm;8cm (or rough equivalent in inches but the first 
dimension must be zero to hide the first, CustomerID, column, so only the 
name shows.
MultiSelect:          Simple or Extended as preferred.

Add a button to the form to open the report, called rpt Customers in this 
example, with the following in its Click event procedure:

    Dim varItem As Variant
    Dim strCustomerIDList As String
    Dim strCriteria As String
    Dim ctrl As Control
    Set ctrl = Me.lstCustomers
    If ctrl.ItemsSelected.Count > 0 Then
        For Each varItem In ctrl.ItemsSelected
            strCustomerIDList = strCustomerIDList & "," & 
        Next varItem
        ' remove leading comma
        strCustomerIDList = Mid(strCustomerIDList, 2)
        strCriteria = "[CustomerID] In(" & strCustomerIDList & ")"
        DoCmd.OpenReport "[rptCustomers]", _
            View:=acViewPreview, _
        MsgBox "No Customers Selected", vbInformation, "Warning"
    End If

The above will open the report in print preview, so you might want a second 
button on the form with slightly amended code ( simply remove the 
'View:=acViewPreview, _' line) to print the report.

thank you very much, the both of you for the suggestions.  I will try them as
soon as I can and give some feedback.  It is obviously part of a larger
database, one that I hope will be easier to make as time goes by.
