See just what's important.
A form can show you the data from one table or from more than one table, so that you can see all the data you want in one place. A form connected to more than one table lets you enter data without having to open those tables.
A form can also emphasize important data and make it more visible, so that it's easier to work with. Or a form can show selected data, hiding what you want to keep private. For example, a form can encourage your customers to enter and update their own contact data, while it keeps shipping and payment details out of sight.
