    In an access table, while trying to enter numbers in a field, it tries to
    autosuggest, e.g. when I enter 1 in a record, then 2 in the next, it suggests
    3 in the next row. I have pulled my hair out to try to disable this. Please
    advise if there is some way to disable this if I have missed it. I have
    consulted help numerous times, to no avail.

    This abominable misfeature was introduced in A2000; the Access team
    got roasted up one side and down the other by the MVP's at the MVP
    Summit, but it has still not been removed in 2003. I believe it's out
    in 2007 (or at least it can be turned off).

    In the meantime, I'd suggest just never using table or query
    datasheets for doing data entry. Continuous Forms do not suffer this
    behavior.
