In the Real World—Heads-Down Data Entry

This chapter’s tables that list key combinations to expedite data entry make dull reading, at best. Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Access 2003 serves as both a tutorial and a reference, and references must be comprehensive. Detailed lists of Access 11 features and their functions, no matter how tedious the list or the features and functions, are unavoidable. There have been no significant changes to data entry key definitions since Access 2.0.

You probably won’t appreciate the benefits of Access’s data entry shortcut keys until you must type a large amount of table data in a Datasheet view. Clearly, it’s preferable to import existing data, taking advantage of Access’s flexible data import features described in Chapter 8. Almost everyone, however, faces the inevitable chore of typing table data, such as testing entries for a new database.
