Chapter 5. Entering, Editing, and Valida... > Adding Records to a Table

Adding Records to a Table

When you create a new table in Datasheet view, it contains 30 empty records with an asterisk (*) in the record selection button of the last (31st) row. Record selection buttons are the gray buttons in the leftmost column of Table Datasheet view. A similar blank record also appears at the end of an existing table if the table is updatable. (An updatable table is one whose data you can add to or edit.) If you open a database for read-only access by marking the Exclusive check box of the Open dialog, this blank record does not appear. Tables attached from other databases also can be read-only; the updatability of attached tables is discussed in Chapter 7, "Linking, Importing, and Exporting Tables."
