Link Subforms based on Parent and Child ID, and open Subform in add new record on open in Access

How can I link a subform based on a record ID, but have the subform open to only add new records?

I have a main form in access with multiple tabs.  I would like the subform to open in the add record mode but only display the ID from the main form.   Is this possible?

If I have a member ID of 123 on the main form.  I have multiple pages that have worksheets, sub reports or forms.  One page I want linked to a subform based on the member ID, but only open in add new record more with the member ID visible.

Set the DataEntry property of that subform to True. This tells Access to ONLY allow new records to be added.
