Navigate Records in a Form
Navigate Records in a Form
You may find it easier to read a record using a form instead of reading it from a large table
containing other records. Similarly, editing a record in a form may be easier than editing a record
in a table. You can locate records you want to view or edit using the navigation bar that appears
along the bottom of the form window. This navigation bar contains buttons for locating and viewing
different records in your database. The navigation bar also contains a Search field for locating a
specific record. (You learn how to search for a record in a form in the next section.)
