It seems obvious to me that this should be doable -- not necessarily in
Access, any program will do!

I want to create a grid in which one axis lists several dozen company
quality procedures (by the released document numbers), and the other
axis lists several dozen company employees. Each employee has to be
trained in certain procedures, so for each employee there's a list of
procedures and for each procedure there's a list of employees.

To indicate that a given employee has to be trained in a given
procedure, I want to just mark the grid at that intersection.

I need to be able to query in both directions. In other words, when a
procedure is revised under document control, I need a list of the
employees to be trained in the revisions. And when an employee is
replaced, I need a list of the procedures to train the new employee in.
