I've done a few tests
Appending a record( button) puts the record at the END of the table, AFTER the COMMENT record.
To open visually, it appears that the last record in the table must be the COMMENT record.
First attempt made the form un-usable visually, so VERY dangerous.

This technique worked though:
Used INSERT command to add my new button record
Located the the COMMENT record and did a "scatter memvar memo"
Then deleted it
Then: insert into myform from memvar
Then: PACK

The idea was to get the COMMENT record to be the last record.

However, I'm not at all confident enough to use this on my live forms.
Particularly, the other problem remains: What values to assign to UniqueID and Timestamp in records manually added??

I'm playing with "less adventurous" exercises:
searching and replacing code in methods
inserting code into methods
Its going good

Thanks for the pointer to get going on this Ken
