Using Data Entry Forms
Data entry forms in your database are useful because they let you create different screen designs for adding and viewing data in your data base. They also let you see one record at a time, rather than seeing all the data in your table.
You can use a data entry form to ...
- Scroll through records
- Edit records
- Add new records
- Delete records
Scroll Through Records
You can use the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen to move (or navigate) through the records.
Any record that is displayed on the form can be edited and changed.
Click on the field to edit and type in the new data.
When you close the form, the updated data will automatically be saved.
Add New Records
If you click on the New Record button all the fields in the form will become blank ready for you to type in new data.
You can delete the record shown on the screen by clicking on the Delete command on the Home tab.
Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete the record.
