open office database problem

I have created a database in open office and included a "Notes" field. However when text is entered into this field it is copied across to all records and is not exclusive to its proper record. I have checked all properties of both this field and an alternative field and they appear to be the same. Its driving me mad, any help is most appreciated Thanks

How are you entering the data into the notes field? Is notes on a subform?

Thanks for your interest. Its not on a sub form. I just double click on the form and write in the apprpriate box as I did with the other fields e.g. e-mail field.

I have had a play with Open Office database which I only have on my laptop (hence the delay as I don't use it every day) and I cannot replicate your problem. What did you state as the format of the notes field? How are you filling the fields in? If this is through a form then I can only think that you have inadvertently set up a sub form and I would suggest that you delete the form and create a new one.
