If the record is new, a message is displayed notifying the user of this. You could run this procedure when the Current event for a form occurs.

Sub NewRecordMark(frm As Form)
Dim intnewrec As Integer
intnewrec = frm.NewRecord
If intnewrec = True Then
MsgBox "You're in a new record." _
& "@Do you want to add new data?" _
& "@If not, move to an existing record."
End If
End Sub
