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
  • Searching

Scroll Through Records

You can use the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen to move (or navigate) through the records.


Edit 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.


Delete Records

You can delete the record shown on the screen by clicking on the Delete command Databaseson the Home tab.


Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete the record.


You can use the search box at the bottom of the form to search for data in the database.
