    Unanswered: MS Access simple query has repeating records

    Hi All,

    I'm testing things out here and ran into a rather odd problem.

    When I run a simple query, the first record shows up once, the second record shows up twice, the third record shows up three times... well you see the pattern here.

    Anybody seen this before?

    Please make it stop!

    Derek, If you could post your query, it would help to see what you are doing.

    All I did was use the Query Wizard (Simple).

    ...and the sql you are using is
    I'm betting you haven't properly defined the relationships or there is anohter issue to do with the join/where clause

    to show the sql.....
    open the query designer
    select the sql view.... (its usually the second row of buttons, far left of menu bar).
    copy and paste the sql here and I reckon some of the SQL know it all's will be able to help pretty quickly

    Do ALL the fields for the specific duplicated records in the query have the same values for EVERY record which is duplicated?

    Have you tried editing the properties of the query and setting the Unique Records property to Yes? (and removing any fields which would cause the record to show twice - ie. John Jone's duplicated records have different values for Field X.)

    There's many reasons records would be duplicated. If you post your SQL statement it will help show why.
