    Default Opening form for new record

    I would like to open a form and be at a new blank record. From a menu a I have a button to open the form using action scripting. I tried setting the "OnInit" and "OnActivate" events to add a new record also thru action scripting but the first record appears. If I attach a button to this form that uses "Add a new record" it works perfectly. Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Alan

    Alan,

    When you create the button to open the form with action scriptiong, you also need to add a 2nd action script to enter the new record. So, on the button's OnPush event, there wil be Open a Form and beneath that, Enter a New record.

    Thanks for your input, but the same action occured. The first record in the table was displayed in the form.
