2. In the Clipboard group on the Home tab, click the Paste button. The pasted
records are added to the table, and a dialog box opens asking you to confirm that
you want to paste all the records (55 total).
Trouble? If the Paste button isn’t active, click the pointer on the row selector
for row 11, making sure the entire row is selected, and then repeat Step 2.
3. Click the Yes button. The dialog box closes, and the pasted records are
highlighted. See Figure 1-18. Notice that the table now contains a total of
65 records—10 records that you entered and 55 records that you copied and

Navigating a Datasheet
The Contract table now contains 65 records, but only some of the records are visible
on the screen. To view fi elds or records not currently visible on the screen, you can use
the horizontal and vertical scroll bars shown in Figure 1-18 to navigate the data. The
navigation buttons , shown in Figure 1-18 and also described in Figure 1-19, provide
another way to move vertically through the records. The Current Record box appears
between the two sets of navigation buttons and displays the number of the current record
as well as the total number of records in the table. Figure 1-19 shows which record
becomes the current record when you click each navigation button. Note the New
(blank) record button, which works in the same way as the New button on the Home tab
you used earlier to enter a new record in the table.
