CHAPTER
Delete a Record from a Form
In addition to removing records directly from a table, as described in the previous section, you can
remove records that you no longer need by using a form. Removing old records can reduce the
overall file size of your database and make it easier to manage. When you delete a record, whether
from a table or a form, Access permanently removes all the data within its fields.
The first step is to locate the record you want to delete; refer to the sections “Navigate Records in a
Form” and “Search for a Record in a Form” for help locating the record.
