Default subform to new record but allow edits

I have a subform that enables user to add records and to ensure it always defaults to a new record I have the OnCurrent event set to DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec. However this is preventing existing records from being edited. How can I have it default to a new record but still allow edits

Use the OnCurrent event of the parent form to move the subform to a new record.

No points please.  I think Gustav's idea of using the main forms Current event is probably the way to go.  

There are also times when I use the subforms Enter event.  This event is visible in the Event tab of the Properies dialog during design mode when you click on the subform controls border.

Thanks Gustav, I will use your idea as it makes such simple sense.

Dale, not quite sure how I would use the Enter event in this situation.

Thanks to  both for your comments
