I have a form that has a dataset for a single table in my database with many fields in it.  What is the easiest way to open the form and have all of the fields in the table ready to accept a new entry and not display any current records.  I am trying to do this without a datagrid.

In your toolbox look under common controls.  You can set the properties of these controls to dataset fields.
or
put these controls on a form and let the person populate them with the information.  Have them click a save button and update the data using sql commands.

bnaveke,

a simple insert or update sql command is what I have been using, but wanted to make sure that there were no other auto/wizard options to set the form to only accept new records.  I have been used to ms access and the whole idea of making a form data entry only and just drag all of my fields onto the form via a linked table.  Your response confirms what I thought might be the case for the visual studio side of things as it relates to the comit data process through forms.

thanks again
