Search for a Record in a Form
You may find it easier to read and edit records in a form than in a large table containing other
records. As described in the previous section, you can locate records you want to view or edit by
using the various buttons in the navigation bar, such as the Previous Record button, the Next Record
button, and so on. However, that method can become time-consuming if the table associated with
the form contains many records. This section describes how to search for the record — an easier
approach to finding a record while using a form. You search using the form’s navigation bar.
Search for a Record in a Form
1 In the Navigation pane,
double-click the form
containing the record you
want to find.
A Access displays the form.
2 Click in the Search box.
3 Type a keyword that relates
to the record you want to
find.
In this example, a search for
a person’s last name is
performed.
B As you type, Access displays
the first matching record.
4 After you finish typing your
keyword, press to
display the next matching
record, if any.
