I have a 2nd form which opens from a command button on a 1st form:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmRequestForPickup", acNormal, , , acFormAdd, acWindowNormal

if the form has never been filled out before.

But if the form has been filled out before I want it to open and show that record which I suppose means it can't open with the acFormAdd in the code.

The way to determine if the form has been filled out before and there is a record entered already is via a field named "PetID".  If the table has a record with PetID matching the field txtPetID in form 1 then display the already existing record.

How?
