Thanks Paul. Do you have more information on or can you please point me to any resources which would help me add a new record vs. updating existing?

looks pretty promising. I will refer to it and update you if it works. thanks

I did take step back and took another look at the form. I changed the default mode from Edit to New and it works perfect now. thanks!
