Adding Data

Now that you’ve created the database, you’re ready to add information to it. In database parlance, this is known as “populating” the fields. Depending on how you created your database, you can use one of two methods to fill it with data:

  • If you used the Access Database Wizard to create the database, you can use the Main Switchboard to enter data. This displays the data in a pre-designed form that makes it easy for you to add data.

  • If you created the table from scratch, you can enter data in Datasheet view. You also can create your own form in place of the Datasheet (but I’ll save that discussion for the section entitled “Creating a New Form,” later in this chapter).
