Form opens for new record but I want a command button that allows user to see all previous records

I have a form that opens to allow the user to enter a new record. Here is the onclick code of the command button on another form that opens the form:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmAddVisit", acNormal, , "[MemberID] = " & Me.txtMemberID, acFormAdd, acWindowNormal

But on the form that opens for a new record entry I want to have a command button that makes the form appear as if the user has opened it for edit.  In other words, show all previous records for that MemberID.

Is this possible?

You are opening the form in add mode.  That is why you don't see the old records.  I see three options.
1. Add a button to change the DataEntry property to No.
2, Add a second button on the menu to open the form in Edit mode.  
3.  Always open the form in edit mode and add a button to it to go to a new record.
