Update and puzzled.
Again, thank you Jason for all the advice.
I've recreated the 3 tables with the naming system you advised. I've entered some data so I can test further.
But I'm stuck again.
The way I have it up to this date, the employer would have to go in and create a set of tasks for each day of the year before the employee could check off that it was completed on time or not.
I added a projectDate field so that a task can be assigned to a date. But that doesn't solve labor intensive issue of employer adding 5 tasks each day to 5 employees. That will never work.
Any guidance most appreciated.
