Forgive me but I'm new to Access and I may ask some simple questions.

The command below apparently saves a record; but to where ?

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70

please help

It saves it into the table.

If you don't use that command, any changes you make to the record (or if you add a new record) aren't saved until you close the form or move off that record to another record (and in some other circumstances). The line above can also be replaced with either of these two:
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
Me.Dirty = False

Then it depends which fields you have entered data into, and the query that you are basing the table on.
