    Post Duplicate entries in Report in MS Access possibly because of multi valued field in the form

    Hi,

    when i am entering multiple values in a multivalued field of a form, the particular entry is getting displayed as many times as the number of comma separated values in that multi valued field in the report linked to that form.

    Please Help.




    TIA

    And what is wrong with that? Need example of what you observe - at least an image.

    A multi-value field is not storing comma separated string. What it stores are really pointers to records in a hidden dependent table.

    I NEVER use multi-value field.

    If you want to provide db for analysis, follow instructions at bottom of my post.
