I have an access form with an add button. The button adds the record to the table, but the form won't clear that entry out. How do I clear the entry?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could create a “New Record Button” on the form using this code:

Private Sub Command20_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command20_Click

DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

Exit_Command20_Click:
Exit Sub

Err_Command20_Click:
MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Command20_Click

End Sub

Or you could put this code at the end of the code of the button you already have, to automatically clear the form after adding the record to the database.

This site has an interesting discussion dealing with the exact same issue that you have. You might find it helpful.
Good Luck
