New Record on Top

Add New Record on Top of a Continuous Form

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to add new records at the top of a continuous form instead of at the bottom, which is the default setting.

David from Woodbridge, Virginia (a Gold Member) asks: I have a continuous form which sorts records by date with the most recent entries at the top. I have a button that allows me to add a new record, but it adds it at the bottom. Is there a way to add the new record at the top of the form?


Members will learn a more elegant solution by collecting the data in unbound fields, performing checks on that data, and then adding the record using SQL before requerying the form.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

There is a minor bug in the code in the extended cut. The following line should be changed:

"VALUES (""" & FirstNameAdd & """, """ & LastNameAdd & """, #" & CustomerSince & "#)"


"VALUES (""" & FirstNameAdd & """, """ & LastNameAdd & """, #" & CustomerSinceAdd & "#)"

I've updated the database download with the fix.
