Try to add a record to a table but encounter error, with the message below.

Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PKPM00400'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.PM00400'.
The statement has been terminated.

Bascially, I have tried to use the key fields to select a record on the table but no records is retrieved. However, it pop up with the error when I add the records on it.

is your Primary Key an auto-incremental field? If it's an auto-increment field, you can omit it in your insert sql statements.

I suspect you are attempting to insert duplicate primary key value. Check which column you have defined Primary Key and see that unique values are inserted into it.
