VTKegan's idea will work but only if you ONLY want new records to be included.

If you put:

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

in your OnLoad event for the form, it will have all the records unfiltered (assuming no other filters on the form) but will start you at a new record upon loading the form each time.
