    [Solved] Form returning last blank table row


    I have a form that takes the users input and return the information correctly in multiple rows but it also includes the last blank row of the table. If the user types last name it will return the information but also display the last row being empty except for "#Name?" being in the last name field. How do I get rid of this?

    The user input is into an unbound control used to filter/goto record? Form is in Continous view? If you want to allow users to enter a new record, need to allow that 'blank' row. That is the new record row. There is an expression with a reference that Access can't resolve. What are the properties of the Last Name field in table and the bound control?

    The user does not input new data, the user inputs a name and the records are then displayed with the name entered. The issue is that if the user types smith, 3 smiths will come up as well as that last blank row. I want that final row to not be displayed only the 3 smiths.

    Try setting the form's Allow Additions property to False
