Why Create Forms?

As you saw in Lesson 11 and 12, you can do all your data entry and editing in a table, but that might not be the best way. For one thing, unless you set your column widths very wide (see Lesson 13), you probably can't see everything you type in a field. Also, if you have data you want to enter into several tables, you must open each table individually.

A better data-entry method is to create a form. With a form, you can allot as much space as needed for each field, and you can enter information into several tables at once. You can also avoid the headaches that occur when you try to figure out which record you're working with on a table; generally, each form shows only one record at a time.
