Editing Form Records

In Access 2000 editing form records may seem confusing at first. This free lesson offers step-by-step instructions.


Edit a form record by doing the following:

  • Open the Great Lake Elementary School database.
  • In the database window, choose the Forms tab from the Objects palette.
  • Double-click the New Student form to open it.
  • Using the status area to navigate the forms, display any record. You may want to edit the record you created on Amanda Lewis from the previous challenge.
  • Click any field you want to modify. The existing data is selected, and a blinking insertion point appears.
  • Type a correction.
  • The corrected data will be saved with the record.
  • Close the New Student form.
