In Access 2010, I have an employees form. When a new user needs to input their information, I want them to be able to open the form and type in their info, but not see any info of other employees. I just want them to see a blank form for data entry. How can I do this in Access 2010

The same way you would do it in all the other versions.  Open the form in Add mode.

docmd.OpenForm "xx",acNormal,,,acFormAdd

If the form is always ONLY going to be used for "Adds", then you can set the DateEntry property on the Data tab of the form properties dialog to Yes.

This was the best solution; it was very complete, gave me options and let me know where to find the option I was looking for and what to look for in the drop down list. This accomplished what I needed to do.
