How do I stop my query from updating records in a table?

P: 1
I am using the following query to generate a report in Access 2007. I want the query to ONLY select records for the report. When I execute this query a new record is inserted in the table. How can I get this code to stop updating the table it is reading from?

Thank you.


SELECT tblFormData.FormID, tblFormData.StudentNumber, tblFormData.SchoolYear, tblFormData.SchoolCode, tblFormData.SportName, tblFormData.ParentSignature, tblFormData.CoachSignature, *
FROM tblFormData
WHERE (((tblFormData.ParentSignature)=[forms]![frmSign]![chkParent]) AND ((tblFormData.CoachSignature)=[forms]![frmSign]![chkCoach]));

I don't think you can stop your query from updating in the table because the query is based off of your table.

Hi and welcome to Bytes.

That query will not generate any new records. However if you view the query results directly (i.e not in your report) you might see a blank template for a new record appear at the bottom. Unless you start typing in that last line, no new record will be created.
