    stDocName = "frmProject"
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    Forms!frmProject.List136.Requery
    Forms!frmProject.txtDrops = ""
    Forms!frmProject.txtJobN.SetFocus

    Exit Sub

Err_Command12_Click:

Is a query... Here is the SQL code:

SELECT Format([tblProjectDetail].[DetailID],"0") AS [Drop], tblProjectDetail.JobN, Format([tblProjectDetail].[Qty],"0") AS Qty, tblProjectDetail.DropDueDate AS [Due Date], tblProjectDetail.Complete, tblProjectDetail.Billed, tblProjectDetail.Name, tblProjectDetail.Cancelled
FROM tblProjectDetail
WHERE (((tblProjectDetail.JobN)=[Forms]![frmProject]![txtJobN]))
ORDER BY tblProjectDetail.Complete DESC , tblProjectDetail.DropDueDate;

I don't understand why you are not getting an error.

Does txtJobN have a default value?

Perhaps you should take a step back and explain exactly what this system is supposed to be doing...?

When I open the form for a new record entry, the lisbox on that form should be empty.

I suspect there is more to this problem than is apparent here.
But a simple fix should be..

WHERE (((tblProjectDetail.JobN)=nz([Forms]![frmProject]![txtJobN], ""))
