Assuming you have a table in MS Access called Account with these columns:

id - AutoNumber: The primary key giving of each account.
client_id - Number: A foreign key pointing to the Client table.
bank_id - Number: A foreign key pointing to the Bank table.
name - Text: The name of this account.
ref_number - Text: A reference number for this account.
status - Text: The status of this account.
remark - Text: Any notes for this account.
