Binding Navigator problem

Hi, In essence I have a form with empty textboxes with must be filled by a user and upon clicking a save button, the data is saved to a database. I could not succeed in connecting to the database and setting up adapters etc, manually, so I dragged a DataGridView to the form (from the Data Sources Pane). VB placed all necessary controls at the bottom. I deleted all items from the BindingNavigator except for the 'Add' button and the 'Save' button. What I need to do is place code in the form's load event 'clicking' the 'add' button so that when the form becomes active, the textboxes is aready in addnew mode. (The textboxes is bound to the datasource). The same with the 'Save' button. I have an "Import..." button in which the data must be Updated (save) to the DB. I would also like to keep the BindingNavigator Toolstrip invisible to users. Please advise. Regards
