I have a form that is accessed via. a switchboard and automatically opens to a new form. Once it is completed, there are two action buttons. One saves the record and exits, the other button exits without saving. This keeps things simple for the user. The manager wants me to set up the form so that the user cannot click on the standard controls that show up on the bottom of the form that allows a user to go back and look at previously entered records. Is there a way for me to delete the standard buttons or disable them?

You can do it without having to remove any buttons.
Set the form's data entry property to Yes. This will allows the user to only view the record(s) entered since the form was opened.

Oh. I did not know about that property. Thanks for the tip.

The users will be able to navigate to the records they entered in the session (until they close the form). If this is undesirable, you can set the Navigation Buttons property of the form to No. This will prevent the user from, well, navigating...

That is helpful too. I have done both. Thanks.
