See attached form frmPrices.

I cannot seem to add a record in here. I get the error;

"Index or Primary Key Cannot Contain A Null Value"

Why?
(It may have to do with my indexes on tblPrices??)

Yes it does.  I made the AutoNumber the Primary Key - as it should be.

please check the table the form frmPrices is bound to.
that table has primary key and/or unique index(es) [which are not auto-number]
those fields cannot be null, so you need to check if the form sets values for all those fields [again: with exception of the field that is autonumber]
the error message tells you that you are missing (at least) one such field

Here is another version with a Unique Index on your original two fields that were the Primary Key before - in case that is what you need ... see attached and image.
