Hide 'New record' record in Access continuous form

I have a simple, one-form, Access 2002 database that has a continuous form in the detail section for displaying data.  Data is entered through pop up forms and, for now, at least, directly into the tables.  It *should not* be entered into the continuous form.  Is it possible to hide the blank 'new record' at the bottom of the continuous form listing?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi irglebleeben,

in the form properties disable the Enable additions option

Hope this helps!


I use spanish version so I don't know exactly how is named in english. Maybe Allow additions or Allow insertions ...

If it Just for display and Data should not be edited,deleted,and added

You need to set All for Property to No
Data Entry NO
Allow Additions No
Allow edit No
Allow Deletitions No
