Save a record

ShowSave a record in a datasheet or form

Microsoft Access automatically saves the record you are adding or editing as soon as you move the insertion point to a different record, or close the form or datasheet (datasheet: Data from a table, form, query, view, or stored procedure that is displayed in a row-and-column format.) you are working on.

  • To explicitly save the data in a record while you are editing it, click Save Record on the Records menu.

ShowSave a record in a data access page

  • On the record navigation toolbar, click Save Button image.

 Note    If you don't see the Save button or if it appears disabled, it means one of the following:

  • The designer of the page has customized the button. Look for custom instructions on the page on how to save your changes.
  • The page is read-only and does not support additions or edits.
