    How are you going about "searching"? Is the purpose of the Form to allow
    the user to change or add a new record? What "_same_ page/form/record"?

    Generally, if you open a bound Form but don't enter a value in one or more
    fields, you can close without saving. If you don't want to let the user to
    add new records, under the Data tab of the Form's property sheet, set Allow
    Additions to No.

    But, if you clarify, perhaps someone can make a useful suggestion.
