thanks alot for your answer but i get an error message after the first line (it's a sub form so it's look like this :

DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "Forms!form1parent!form1child.Form", acNewRec

and i get an error message like this "run time error 2489 the object "Forms!form1parent!form1child.Form" isn't open. But the form is actually open, so what is going on there?

Try to use these instead:

Forms!form1.SetFocus
Forms!form1!form1child.SetFocus
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
