I have a form users can update and enter data for existing clients.  I have disabled the new record featu8re.  However, I want to have a "New" button on the form that will allow the form to accept information for a new client.  So, with FVBA, how do I change the opened, bound form to a new data entry form?  I know it can be done, I just can't find my code!

On the click event of that button, you can add:

Me.DataEntry =True

and have a cancle and save buttons; include the following in both:

Me.DataEntry =False

Now, if you want to set focus on the record you just entered, you can post another question for that when you done with this part successfully.
