Hello,

I am developing an Access Project front-end and SQL Server back-end application.  

First I need to display a form which is ready for data entry, so I need to somehow move the recordset to display a new (empty) row.  

Is the following code the best way to display a blank row in a form and then insert a new record?
Private Sub Command3_Click()

    Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rcd As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rcd = New ADODB.Recordset
    Set cnn = CurrentProject.Connection
   
rcd.Open "Select * from Requests", cnn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
   
    With rcd
        .AddNew
        !Case_Patient_Num = txtCase_Patient_Num
        .Update
    End With

End Sub

The only suggestion I would make is to put the code that moves to the record and populates the field in the forms On_Load Event:
First you will have to Dim a Global Variable:
Global strPatientNum As String
Then, in your command button click event set it to rcd!Case_Patient_Num :
strPatientNum = rcd!Case_Patient_Num

Form On_Load()
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
txtCase_Patient_Num.Value = strPatientNum

I dont know if this way is better or safer, its just my preferred method.
