This is NEVER either necessary nor is it a good idea. Creating such
empty "placeholder" records does you no good at all!
Instead, make the second form a Subform of the first one, using the ID
as the master/child link field. Then when you actually enter data onto
the subform, the ID will fill in for you automatically (but not until
you need it).
