First Record in Access Continous Form not Filtering

I have created a continous form that is filtered by 3 different combo boxes.
The first record in the form is not filtering.
The first fields  just change to the combo box selection and then the rest of the data for the first record stays the same...and stays on the screen, regardless of my other combo box selections.
The combo box filtering works fine except for this first record.
What am I missing?

Can you provide a screen shot?

Where are your controls for entering your filter criteria?  Normally those UNBOUND controls go in the form header or footer, or possibly in another form altogether.

Check by deleting this record. Does filtering work?

If filter works then check filter criteria.
