Duplicate Value error with Single Table across multiple tabs

Ok bare with me on this one....

I have 1 table "Expenses" that holds about 50 fields broken down into sub

I have a Subform tied to a main form so that when I pull up a client it will
show all of that clients expenses divided out by the sub categories onto
seperate tabs. To view it everything is fine; however, when I want to enter
expenses for a new client I have an error.

The first tab of categories enters fine, and I can enter the 2nd tab, but
when I exit that tab I get a duplicates value error.

I have figured out what is happening, but can't get a fix yet. Because the
tabs are tied to the main form by the ID number and since we are just rolling
from tab to tab, the first one is not updating in the table and saving
properly. So when I enter the second one it is trying to create a new entry
for the same ID number causing a duplicates value.

I have tried to save the record with the docmd.save and I have tried to do a
refresh of the data with the DoCmd.DoMenuIte m acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, ,
acMenuVer70 command. The refresh only works if I do it on the main form;
however, I know my users will forget to go up and push a button. I want to
make it work with an on exit command or on update or something on the first

Sorry for the drawn out question but hope it gives the insight needed for a
helpful reply.

TIA for any help.

I've run across this issue several times of late, and I've never come up with a satisfactory answer to the best way to handle this schema issue. You have a large section of schema in which a subset of records across all tables is often considered a separate logical system, but sometimes may be treaded ar part of the global system, and there is not simply a 1-m-m... tree among the records in a logical database. Here's an example. A...

Hi all. My ultimate goal is to return two columns, where no single value appears anywhere twice. This means that not only do I want to check that nothing from column A appears in column B and vice-versa, but I also don't want the same value appearing twice in A and twice in B. So far I have: --Diff the columns INSERT INTO @Table SELECT One, Two FROM @Column1 a FULL OUTER JOIN @Column2 b

hey experts, please advise me what is the best way to save multiple checkboxes value in a database.
