Form Input is repeating through all queried records

Hello,

I have a form that was built off a query and I have a blank field that comes from one of the two tables (queried).  I need the user input for this field.  I am running a test.  Everytime I enter a value, that value repeats to all the queried record.  Please help!

Are you using a Continuous Form? If so, then the control will need to be "bound" to a ControlSource.

If not, perhaps you could post a screenshot of what you're referring to.

Does your form have a subform (or is it a split form)?
Could you post a screenshot of the 'relationships'

If your form has a subform, then you should link the 'master field' and 'child field' (which should be unique values)
These should be in the tables in the underlying the query upon which the form is based.

There should be a one-to-many relationship between the two tables for a continuous sub-form.

If you link the parent form and the subform with a field that does not contain unique values
you may get the type of results you have at the moment.

I set up a sub form but now when I run the query it is asking for the master and child field that I set which is the ID in the Final table.  If I don't put anything in there then that field in the query goes to Expr1...and is blank.  I need that field to tie my main and child form together.  How do you get around that??  Also my child form font is too big.  Looking to where I can make it smaller in the properties

It would be a big help if you could you post a screenshot of the 'relationships'

To tie the two forms together you need to have a one to many link between the two link fields (in the tables)
Do a search for create subform in access
There's loads of stuff available

To reduce the font in the subform just open the form in design view
(there should be a button on the top right called "Subform in new window")
