Does anyone know if it's possible to add new data to the top of a continuous form, rather than the bottom?

I have a continuous form that has multiple items that need entered daily on a weekly basis, and it would be easier if I could enter the latest data at the top of the form, rather than having to scroll to the bottom each time, as its very long.

That is not possible.

You may simulate it by having two subforms. One on top for entering data, one below for display existing data, but that will take a little.
you can place the controls on the forms header section as well...

rather than having to scroll to the bottom each time, as its very long.
for this you can have a button to take you to new record, or have this in code by forms open event.

Thanks - I've just realised I can put the record selection option on and go to the last record.
