Hi Folks,
When I add a record  - after the record is created in the table - how do I ensure that the added record displays in the form instead of a blank form ready for another addition?
Thanks.

First, check the "Cycle" property, located on the Other tab of the property dialog box.  Set this value to "Current Record"

This way, when you reach the last field on the form, rather than automatically moving to the next record, the cursor will move back to the first field (by tab order) in the form.
