adding partnumbers to order number

Hello,
am attaching sample db.
is there a way to add more than one part number on a form?
and not create extra fields?
I have order number, name, and part number. and I want to be able to add 6 to 10 parts to same order number.
thank you

you should create another table  

OrderParts (
  OrderNumber Text
  PartNumber Text
)

and make both columns as primary index

then drop the PartNumber on tblEnter Table

and when you click add, you should loop all parts and insert into OrderParts

also add a relation, and change the column in tblEnter datatype to DateTime

here is what I mention... add a grid/subform to your form to insert parts

I removed the partnumber from main table, thats why you get that error
