Suppress line in MS Access datasheet

I have a datasheet where I'm adding new rows but as soon as I start changing a column a second row appears with a star below with similar values. Why does this row appear and is there a way to hide it or at least that it show null values?

Access grids of updatable data sources show always this line with asterisk as placeholder for a new line. The values you see are the default values of the tables or the controls.

In short: This is the default behaviour, by design and as a user I don't expect it to be different.

I personally prefer to have a popup form for data entry, and generally only use datasheets for data display/edits.

In your case, you have quite a few currency fields, ...anytime you create a number or Currency field, the default value will automatically be set to zero.
You can turn this off by explicitly opening the table in design view, and deleting any default values for the currency fields.

(However for you "Curr"...? field, ...since this is text, may need to keep the default value)
