It would be helpful if you asked your question in the message content and
give a topic in the subject line.

If you mean to ask how to open your form to a blank record, open your form
in design mode, view properties, set the Allow Additions and Data Entry
lines to "Yes". How will you view/edit existing records?

Sorry about the subject line question I thought it would be easier to read
it like that..
I will view the existing records in table form.

A database is NOT a spreadsheet; few, if any, users should be doing data
entry in tables. They are NOT cells that can hold values and formulas, they
are just an unordered storage collection. Create a query to
order/filter/sort your data, then create a form for data entry/editing.
Look at some of the sample databases and/or template generated ones for
examples.
