Entering Data in a Table

1Open the table in which you want to enter data. Notice that the first field is selected.

2If the selected field is an AutoNumber field (shown here), press Tab to move to the next field. If not, type an entry in the selected field before pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.

3The insertion point moves to the next field (here, the First Name field). Type an entry (in this case, Andrew) and press the Tab key.

4The next field is selected. Continue typing entries and pressing the Tab key until you complete all the fields in the row, or record.

5When you press Tab after completing the last field in the row, Access saves the record and creates a new, blank row, ready for your entries.
