    Subform creating new unwanted entries

    I have a problem,

    I've been trying to reproduce the frame of Northwind Traders example database but I've hit a snag.

    On 'Orders' form, when adding a new product to the order via the subform 'Orders Subform' - my database is adding a new unwanted entry into the 'Product' table, rather then just passing the information to the 'Orders Detail' table.

    I can't figure this one out. If my working file would help, ask and I can post it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you aware of the fact that Access will save the MainForm record when you move to the SubForm and then save the SubForm record when you move the focus back to the MainForm?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
