I am trying to enter a new record. The code I have written overwrites an existing record (not good). How do I enter a new record in code. I am using

'open the form to access it
        DoCmd.OpenForm "frmmaintenance", acNormal, , , acFormAdd, acWindowNormal
       
        'Make new record
         Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Customer.SetFocus
         DoCmd.GoToRecord , acDataForm, acLast
         DoCmd.GoToRecord , acDataForm, acNewRec ??
'Setfocus on text box then write to it
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Customer.SetFocus
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Customer.Text = Me.txtCustname
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Request.SetFocus
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Request.Text = Me.description
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Priority.SetFocus
        Form_frmMaintenanceSub.Priority.Text = "Z - Non Proritised"

Any suggestions please

So.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmmaintenance"
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

With Form_frmMaintenanceSub
 .Customer.SetFocus
 .Customer.Text = Me.txtCustname
 .Request.SetFocus
 .Request.Text = Me.description
 .Priority.SetFocus
 .Priority.Text = "Z - Non Proritised"
End with

jell it now displays an error "Run time error '2105' you can't go to the specified record"
 I can go to the form "maintenance" (and subform "submaintenance")and use the standard menu bar to enter a new record but I need to be able to do it in code.
