I cannot imagine why this would bring back more than one record, as you generally don't repeat ID values, and:

SELECT Max([ID]) from tblCustomers

would only return a single ID value.

Can you describe (in words, not SQL) what it is you really want to accomplish?  

You may have to provide  a little more detail about your table structure.  If you could provide a couple of sample records (sanitized to avoid revealing personal, financial, or proprietary information) , that would be even better.
