Chapter 41. Creating and Customizing Tables > Working in Datasheet View

Working in Datasheet View

After you've completed the structural design of a table, you can turn your attention to entering new records and viewing data in the table. For specialized data entry and reporting tasks, you'll design custom forms and reports. But for simple tasks, Datasheet view offers a quick and easy way to work directly with data. You can sort data by any field or combination of fields, and add or delete records at any position within the table. You can also change the overall look of a particular table in Datasheet view by changing fonts, hiding columns, and freezing columns so that they stay visible when you scroll.

Entering and Editing Data

When working in Datasheet view, Record Selector icons at the left edge of a row provide important information about the status of that row.
