frmWater is bounded to tblWater. In the frmWater form, I have a "Cancel" button (btnCancel).

It is this button I want to modify to clear all currently entered data and starts a new blank page of frmWater when clicked.

The way I presently resolves the problem is by "DoCmd.Close" followed by "DoCmd.OpenForm "frmWater"  which makes refreshing of my form very slow. I will like to dsicard this method and use something much better. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Here is my current code:
Private Sub btnCancel_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btnCancel_Click
If Me.Dirty Then
End If
'  DoCmd.Close                            <---- I want to remove this command and replace
                                                         it with something better
'  DoCmd.OpenForm "frmWater"   <--- I want to do away with this command
                                                        and replace it with something better
    Exit Sub
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_btnCancel_Click
End Sub
