Adding data by using a form.
Even though data is stored in tables, the best way to enter data is by using a form, not by typing in the table itself. Forms are easier to use, present you with only the necessary choices, and can provide helpful text to people who enter data.
If your database contains forms, you'll want to see how they are laid out and determine if they are easy to use. You might also want to enter some test data in a backup version of the database to see how it gets stored.
Entering data in a form is fairly easy. If you are on the last record of the form, you can just press TAB or ENTER to create a new record.
If you are on a different record, such as one in the middle of your form, you can click the New record button.
As you can see in the picture to the left, a new, blank record is created. The New record button is unavailable because you haven't completely filled out this record yet.
You just type the new data, in this case about Misty Shock, and then press TAB or ENTER to move to the next record.
