Hide the last record in a Form used for searching?

I've created a form, based on a query, where the form has input fields which determine the criteria for the query to display.  The problem is when the form is initially opened, prior to entering the search criteria in the input fields, the last record of the table which the query is based on is visible on the form.  I would like to have no records visible until the criteria is entered into the input fields and the query is ran?  Any help is appreciated.

RE: Hide the last record in a Form used for searching?

Well then make the form NOT bound to your query
Delete the record source
then use this code to set the form to your search

   dim MyRecordSource  as atring
'  Initialize SELECT statement.
    MyRecordSource = "SELECT * FROM [YourTable] WHERE [yourfield] = " & Me![Yourtextbox]
       ' set record source to Subform
    'Me![YOURsubform].Form.RecordSource = MyRecordSource

    ' Set it to a main form
    me.RecordSource = MyRecordSource
