Record is deleted error when adding new record

lmgregg asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a form that lists all purchase orders with a button to add a new Purchase Order.  

Sometimes this causes Access to crash and the new PO record is corrupted - all fields show #Deleted.

Is there a problem with the following code or a better way to add a new record?  The [PO] field is required and is the primary key.

On Error GoTo Err_newb_Click
    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String
    Dim NextCount As Integer
    Me.FilterOn = False
    Me.OrderByOn = True
    Me.OrderBy = "PO"
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast
    NextCount = 1 + [PO]
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    [PO] = NextCount

    stDocName = "PO (Form)"
    stLinkCriteria = "[PO]=" & Me![PO]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_newb_Click
