Save button inserts unbound controls into append query

I'm new to using append queries.

I found this page MS Access Unbound Forms and VBA which talks about creating a continuous form unbound from the original recordset. I think this is part of what I need.

I have a continuous form with the source being "qry_BLT_Update". This is an append query based off the table "tblBlotter".
On the form, I have several unbound textboxes, comboboxes and an option group. I simply want to be able to insert the values someone entered into the unbound controls to write to "tblBlotter" using a save button "btnSave". Then refresh/requery the source of the form to verify the new addition into the table.

I have the following code based on the page above, but not sure how it works.
Code:
Public Sub getRecords()
'Code for updating append query
'turn off warnings, delete then populate the local access table with the SQL data
 DoCmd.SetWarnings False

 DoCmd.RunSQL "DELETE FROM tblBlotter"
 DoCmd.OpenQuery "qry_BLT_Update", acViewNormal

 DoCmd.SetWarnings True

'dynamically set the recordsource and controlsource to the Access table.
 Me.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM tblBlotter"
 txtMe.ID.ControlSource = "ID"
 txtEntryDate.ControlSource = "EntryDate"
 txtEntryTime.ControlSource = "EntryTime"
 cboBadgeNum.ControlSource = "BadgeNum"
 cboLocation.ControlSource = "Location"
 txtResponse.ControlSource = "Response"
 opOType.ControlSource.Value = "OType"

End Sub

It says to add the below code to the form load, but I'm unsure this is actually what I want. I'm also unsure that these codes are complete.
Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
'Code for updating append query
 'Run Public Sub "getRecords()"
 getRecords
End Sub
Thanks in advance!

Nevermind - was doing it all wrong. Just wanted to write to table.

Code:
Dim DB As Database
Dim rec As Recordset

Set DB = CurrentDb
Set rec = DB.OpenRecordset("Select * from tblBlotter")

rec.AddNew
rec("EntryDate") = Me.txtEntryDate
rec("EntryTime") = Me.txtEntryTime
rec("BadgeNum") = Me.cboBadge.Value
rec("Location") = Me.cboLocation.Value
rec("Response") = Me.txtResponse
rec("OType") = Me.opOType.Value

rec.Update
