Add duplicates in a Form help please

Hello everyone. I was hoping someone could help, I'm having real trouble with this

 

I have a form and I want people to be able  to add comments on a particular batch number. 

How on earth do I do this please, I've been trying all afternoon!

I've tried a lookup on the submit form command but got lost.

 

Any help at all would be much appreciated 

 

Thank you in advance

A form displays a single record.  If you want to add many comments to a single record, I suggest that you create a second table that has two columns (in addition to its own ID column).  The table should contain the foreign key (the ID of the batch, say batchID) and a column for the comments.  When you select the record for the batch, you can reference the comments table in another gallery by setting its Items to 

Filter(Comments, batchID = gallery1.Selected.ID)
