I have a form that looks something like this:
Start Time  Stop Time      Status Code      Incident      Incident Title
12:00           1:00                             E                         34          Standby

I need to have that form automatically go to the next line and start another line with the same format. I couldnt draw the lines,  but it should be a table format. So when they tab at the end it will start another row automatically with date/time format and all the other columns.

Generally you do this by capturing the values in module-level variables. For example, in the General Declarations section of your FORM, add these variables:

Private mdStartTime As Date
Private mdStopTime As Date
Private msStatusCode As String
etc etc

Now capture the values in the Form's BeforeUpdate event:

Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
  mdStartTime = Me.[Start Time]
  msStatusCode = me.[Status Code]
End Sub

Now, in the Current event ofy our form, check for a NewRecord and if found, add those values;

Sub Form_Current()
  If Me.NewRecord Then
    Me.[Status Code]= msStatusCode
    Me.[Start Time] = mdStartTime
  End If
End Sub

Obviously you'd have to change the names of your controls and such based on your project, and you'd have to add the other variables to handle all the items you need.
