Take a look at table1.....the first record is blank.   Edit your table and the 'extra' record will be removed.

Good luck

In addition to that, your 'Completed' button is allowing users to add records to that table where the name is blank.  So, even if you remove that current blank row, your users will probably just ad more in the future.

Also, word of advice: NEVER just leave your control names as Command7 or Command26.  ALWAYS give them meaningful names.

The record is already  in your table so it will always appear in the query.
Delete it from the table.
