Entering Data in a Table

To fill a table with data, you enter the data record by record. To complete each record, you enter information into the fields of the record. You probably will want to use a form to enter data into a table, but you can also enter the data directly into the rows and columns of the table.

Click the Tables tab in the Database window.

2.
Double-click a table name (Figure 31.3).
