    I have a form that others can enter data on. I want that when they open up
    the form, it automatically takes that person to the last completed form.
    Then they can click the arrow at the bottom and get a new blank sheet.

    Or, it would probably be better, if possible, to automatically start them on
    the next blank form.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    To take the user to the last record entered, you need to sort the record
    source of the form Desc by the field that indicate which record was inserted
    first, that way the last record entered will be the first one to be dispayed

    Select TableName.* From TableName Order By FieldName Desc

    Good luck

    Hey DDrowe, this is easy to accomplish by using Docmd.GoToRecord. You can
    place this code in the On Open event of the form:

    DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "FormName", acNewRec

    Replace FormName with the name of your form.
