Finding Records

In Access XP finding records may seem confusing at first. This free lesson offers step-by-step instructions.

Performing a simple find

  • Click the Cancel button if the record was found. The Find and Replace dialog box will close.


  • Click the Find Next button to search for the next record that meets the criteria.

If Access did not find a match for the search, the Office Assistant will pop up to inform you that there were not any matched records found.
