    How to prevent duplicates in said example

    Hello, i have a program i am building that consists of three tables,

    1. Customer Info
    2. Computer Info
    3. Jobs

    I have created a form that has all the fields from each table, however as it currently is i am afraid that the database will create duplicate client information, is there a way to easily look up clients if they are already existing and bring in the per tenant data without re-entering it all with only a few clicks? it is all text data that needs to be brought in, address, phone, etc.

    I have a client ID numbering system set up as the primary key.
    last thing is i will be using this program from the form, dont know if that makes a difference.

    You have one form with a RecordSource of three joined tables? This is not the correct way to do data entry into related tables. Review
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
