Too many results for query

Morning,

I have the following error and could not find any resources to help me here or in internet

I am running a query which will sort a column of combinations and related fields based on user entered values. Since I did not know any other ways, I went in to query design view and in the criteria (of the combination column) put in the following

(GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![ocitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![oprovcombo])) & (GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![dcitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![dprovcombo]))

Open in new window


GetO is a function and rest are user entered fields. I've done a self test on the fields and they are populating fine. The problem is, when I run the query, instead of populating nearly 17 records (based on combination), its populating 94,000 rows and related data

The combination is same but its duplicating the data on the output of query!

Anyone know any common source of this? Any help is much appreciated as this is blocking me from proceeding :/

Thanks!

It would also be useful to know either what the Get0() function code looks like, or what the function returns for a couple of values.

SQL of query

SELECT INTER.TCOMBI, INTER.LTL, INTER.[500], INTER.[1M], INTER.[2M], INTER.[5M], INTER.[10M], INTER.[20M] INTO BTER
FROM OUT, INTER
WHERE (((INTER.TCOMBI)=(GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![ocitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![oprovcombo])) & (GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![dcitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![dprovcombo]))));

Open in new window


Only 1 column is filtered using function above

GetO function is in Module1 - Returns a combination based on 4 user entered values. Again, this part is working as the query is actually sorting but somehow bringing in way too many duplicates instead of 17.

Function GetO(origin As String) As String

        Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
        Dim strSQL As String
        Dim varResult As String
        
        strSQL = "Select OUT.TCOMBI " & "FROM OUT " & "WHERE OUT.OUTCOMBI = '" & origin & "' " '& "ORDER BY tblAll.City;"
        Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
        
        If Not (rst.EOF And rst.BOF) Then
            GetO = DLookup("TCOMBI", "OUT")
        End If
        
        Set rst = Nothing
        
End Function

Including OUT table on the query causes a cross join between the 2 tables, thus it is returning duplicates. Exclude it from the query since the record is retrieved inside the function
SELECT INTER.TCOMBI, INTER.LTL, INTER.[500], INTER.[1M], INTER.[2M], INTER.[5M], INTER.[10M], INTER.[20M] INTO BTER
FROM INTER
WHERE (((INTER.TCOMBI)=(GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![ocitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![oprovcombo])) & (GetO([Forms]![Point2Point]![dcitytxt] & [Forms]![Point2Point]![dprovcombo]))));

Wow! Its a matter of having that table opened in the design view eh!
I removed that table and it worked like a charm :)
Thanks a ton!
