After embedding a unique record picture in base without problems, i thought i would replicate the idea with a text box. Though i can add and type into the text box in 1 record, it gets replicated in all other records. I want it to be blank in the new records, then add unique text for the remaining records.

You have to bind your text box to a field in your database. In form design mode, right mouse button click on your textbox control and choose Properties, then click on the Data tab. In here, choose the field of your database table to which you want to bind your textbox entry.

Note that this doesn't work for formatted textbox controls, which can not be bound to a datasource (limitation of the current implementation).
