Access - extra blank row at the end of table

Access adds an extra blank row in a table, and this is counted as one of the records, but it is really not. This can be confusing when I run queries, etc, on this table, as it appears that the output result is one record off, but it is not and is due to the blank row.

I am also unable to delete this blank row from the table.

Suggestions are appreciated.

Access does add blank rows. The data grid shows one for tables where you can add a row. This blank row in the grid is not counted.

Please post an example database showing your behavior.

There is normally "what appears to be" a blank record an the bottom of most datasheet views.
This is not considered in any "Counts" by/in Access.

You can hide this, by setting the "Allow Additions" property of the form to No.

It's a *non-issue* .... it's the New Record Row.  It does nothing and is not counted in any record count.

You have no worries ...

"Access does add blank rows."
It's not really a 'blank' row ... implying a row with no or Null data.  It;s just the position to add a new record.
