I use the below query as the row source for a combobox in a form. If I just run the query no duplicates are shown, however in the combobox the duplicates are shown.

Why is this happening?
SELECT DISTINCT BankAccountNumber FROM itblBankAccounts WHERE BusinessUnit IN (SELECT BusinessUnit FROM qryBusinessUnits) ORDER BY BankAccountNumber;

Open in new window

Oh jesus I feel like an idiot. I forgot I set the recordsource when the form loads... not really sure why I'm doing that but thats why. I forgot to change to DISTINCT in there.

Easy points eh?
