First Try at Creating a User Form

I have exhausted my search abilities to find an answer to what should be
a simple question.

I created a user form that pretty much duplicates the built in Data
Form. The major difference is that it does not contain all of the
fields in the data base -- just a few of them and it doesn't have all of
the controls only a Next and Previous control as well a Close.

The form is just what I want but I can't figure out how to get it to
display the values of the fields when I open it. That is the first
problem.. I want it, like the built in form, to show the values of
fields for each record as I move up and down through the database by
putting a Next and Previous control on the form.

Can someone get me started in the right direction?

Thank you very much.

Whoops! I lost my orientation and posted this in the wrong group.
Please excuse me.
