Use Data Entry Forms in Access: Overview

            After creating data entry forms, you can use data entry forms in Access to edit, create, and navigate table records. Navigating within a data entry form is exactly like navigating through records in the datasheet view of a table.

            You can use the “Tab” key on your keyboard to move through the data fields. You also have the same “record navigation” buttons in the lower-left corner of the data entry form that you have in the datasheet view of a table. These buttons let you move through the records in the table.

            You can also add a new record into the table through the form by clicking the “New Record” button in the lower-left corner of the data entry form. You just need to remember that a data entry form is simply a “face” for your database tables.
