Entering Data into a Form

The point of creating a form is so that you can enter data into your tables more easily. The form acts as an attractive mask that shields you from the stark reality of the table's Datasheet view. To enter data into a form, follow these steps:

  1. Open the form. In the database window, click the Forms object, and then double-click the form's name .

  2. Click in the field you want to begin with and type your data.

  3. Press Tab to move to the next field. If you need to go back, you can press Shift+Tab to move to the previous field. When you reach the last field, pressing Tab moves you to the first field in a new, blank record (you can also use the mouse to move from field to field).

    To move to the next record before you reach the bottom field or to move back to previous records, click the right- and left-arrow buttons on the left end of the navigation bar at the bottom of the window.

  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to enter all the records you like. They're saved automatically as you enter them.
