Query Builder in MS Access 2010 "improvement"

Last Modified: 2012-08-11
All I want to do is a simple query on a constant.  Say I have a table with a numeric column called "Score".  I want to enter 2 in the Criteria Section.  but it brings up a dropdown list of all the other tables and queries and operators and functions and god knows what else instead, and when I type 2 (Enter) my simple number 2 is now a query I have called [2011 Data].  I can't even type "is not null" without it wanting to insert something in the place of the word null!!!!!   Surely this is a configurable setting?  I can't find it though.  Thanks for your help, I'm a little frustrated!
