Hello,

I have a MS Access form, that has a subform. The bottom subform is showing duplicate record values and I can't figure out why. Attached is a screenshot and a sample database.

How do I restrict the subform to only showing each unique record once?

Thanks

Your problem lies in the query qryTransactions.

You have no link set between the two tables and so you are getting every record in one table linked with every record in the second table.
Look at the results of that query and you will see.

But I can't actually see a common field so I don't know how you would link them.

Generally, a main form/subform has the main form bound to the "one" table in a one-to-many relationship, and the subform bound to the "many" table.  You may need to fix your table relationships so this will work (the sooner the better, as correct table structure and relationships are essential).

Thanks. I see the problem now. I deleted the query fields from the unlinked table and it worked.
