Editing field in form

P: n/a
I created a form that has a date field for a person that has violated
one our rules on a visit. This has their Name, address, Date of
Violation, type of violation and so on. When I first created this I did
not know that there could be multiple entries for the same person. Is
there a way to add to the date field and put a new date, and update the
violation per new violation? So if a person comes in violates the first
time he goes into the system. If he comes in again I would like to add
not update the persons ID by adding dates to a record and the new or
same violation. Any ideas would help. Thanks in advance.

I'd have a table for the person and a one-to-many-related table for
violations, as a start.

You should fix the flaw in the database structure, not attempt a hack.

Create a Violations table and a one-to-many join from the Visitor table to
the Violations table, and use a form/subform for data entry/review. Use the
Analyze Table Wizard to create the Violations table and split existing
records...
