    Forms Locked in Edit Only

    Developed a simple database which has two forms based on queries that allow the user to add and edit data. But, for some reason, the forms only allow editing of existing data and will not let the user add new data.



    I've checked the property sheets to ensure I didn't inadvertantly lock the forms into the edit only mode.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    what are you trying in order to get to a new record? what have you tried? there are various properties that have different effects that can cause this, depending on the effort the user is using to get to a new rec.

    The forms are based on queries which are based on tables. I can go to the table and add data but can't add data when I open the form.

    take a look here: http://allenbrowne.com/ser-61.html

    There are many pages like that on the web. But that one pretty much explains everything I think.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
