Chapter 6. Entering, Editing, and Valida... > Adding Records to a Table

Adding Records to a Table

When you open an updatable table in Datasheet view, the last row is an empty placeholder for a new record, called the tentative append record in this book. (An updatable table is one whose data you can add to or edit.) An asterisk in the last record selection button in the datasheet indicates the tentative append record. Record selection buttons are the gray buttons in the leftmost column of Table Datasheet view. If you open a database for read-only access, the tentative append record doesn’t appear. Tables attached from other databases can also be read-only. The updatability of attached tables is discussed in Chapter 8, “Linking, Importing, and Exporting Data.”

Tip

To go to the tentative append record of a table quickly, press Ctrl++ (plus).
