Read Continuous Forms hiding duplicates by Mike Markalous @ 11/28/2015
Hello Alex
thanks for answering.
There seems to be a slight misunderstanding about what I am trying to do
and it is hard to explain in words.

What looks like this:

Utrustning  St llning            Hyra / dag   .....
Utrustning  St llning            Utk rning
Utrustning  Lift                 Hyra
Utrustning  Container            Hyra
Utrustning  Container            Tippavgift  

Should look like this:

Utrustning  St llning            Hyra / dag
                                  Utk rning
             Lift                 Hyra
             Container            Hyra

Is there a possiblity to send jpg-s or pictures in any way.
It would communication easier.

Read Continuous Forms hiding duplicates by Mike Markalous @ 11/28/2015
Continuous forms do not offer the possibility of 'hiding duplicates' like reports do.
Is there any other possibility of hiding recurring information which clog up the screen. I thought of something like this under 'conditional formatting':
  if field(present row) = field ( row - 1 ) then set FontColour and BackgroundColour alike.
The solution I have now requires a field in the database, a little code and then I use 'conditional formatting'

Thanks in advance for the support

Hello from Sweden

For all listings or detail forms one uses continuous forms.
The problem is, that in forms there is - to my knowledge - no possibility ( as in a report ) to hide duplicates.

The solution I have uses 'conditional formatting'. However it requires one or more fields in the database.

Is there another way by using 'conditional formatting' by addressing a field maybe in this manner.
-- if field(row) = field(row-1) then blank

Thanks in advance for the support

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Why not just remove the duplicates from your underlying record source.
i.e. get your Query to be DISTINCT

How does one make the form so that the new record to be added is at the top of the continuous form instead of the last line of the form?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

The new record can only be at the bottom. You can change this OOB.

You could set the Record Source to be a Query sorted in a way that shows new records at the top once added.

You could create a custom form which you have textboxes at the top to take input for your new record and have a sub form which displays all the records
