I'm not sure what I'm missing here, but I have a SQL server database that was converted from an Access database, and if I insert a record onto a certain table, I get errors if any records are created with duplicate data in a "storeNo" field.  I'm a bit new to SQL so I'm hoping it's just something I'm overlooking.

The field is not designated as a primary key, and I can't find anything in the field properties that would indicate there could be an issue with having two records with non-unique data in this field.

See the attached screenshot.  Ideas?
