Informatics for the public health workforce
As with queries, any data editing or entry that you do using forms affects the data in the tables they are based on.
Just as tables are an inefficient means of viewing data, they are also an inefficient means of entering new data. Creating forms to handle data entry in Access is simple, thanks to built-in wizards.
Click on the Forms object in your database window, and choose New.
Choose Form Wizard (1), and then choose the table or query that you want to base your form on from the drop-down list. In this example, the participants table is chosen as the form source.
