Making the form blank

I have a form for entering data into a table. I would like the form to be blank when I open it, but it is showing the data contained in the first record of the table. Is there any way to set the properties so that it defaults to an "input new record" mode? In other words, I don't want it to display the data for the first record when I open the form... Thanks for any help.

Just set the properties on the form to Data Entry...Yes.

This will do it for you.
