Make new Record

Make new Record

Make new Record

I would like to add a "make new record" command on one form and have it open a different form to add the new record to.  The forms need to be filled out in a sequence.  The first form always needs to be filled out but the second and the third form are optional, the users would like a command that allows them to automatically start a new record from one of the two optional forms(this would mean that they need to start from the first form again).  Any help you have would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Make new Record

The best thing to do, it sounds like, is to create some subforms, or use button wizard thingies. I would first build the forms that you want opened and then link them either as subforms or with buttons, or both. You can make the buttons (when creating with a wizard) to open up to specific information.
