I have a continuous form that has a button whose On Click Event is
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
Problem is that the new record is not totally visible, only the top part of it. Is there any way of setting it up so that the new record is positioned at the top of the page or at least that the whole selected record is visible?

When you go to the new record, the focus will be set to the first control (in the tab order) of the record.  You can try moving the focus to the last control, and then back to the first, something like:

docmd.gotorecord ,,acnewrec
me.txtLastControlName.setfocus
me.txtFirstControlName.setfocus
