how to save data entry on button click only

P: 65

I would like to make a data entry form that does not save values until "save" is clicked. This is because sometimes the form may be opened by accident and it automatically creates a blank entry. I have read that this should be done in the before update event of the form. Would this be easier to do if the form were unbound? I am just looking for any suggestions to the easiest solution.

Thanks for your time on this newb question

I would think that unbound controls would be required.
OnClick of the Save button you have a choice.
1. Execute an INSERT INTO query for the record on the form.
2. Write some ADODB or DAO code to add the record.
