Showing the navigation pane
Similar to a desktop database application, a Web App provides a
navigation pane, which groups your Access objects. This is
similar to the desktop database interface and can be filtered easily
to help you locate a specific design object. This means that you
can use design features from both the table in the Table Selector
and the table contained in the navigation pane.
In the navigation pane, the views are listed under the heading
Forms. This is because the terminology used in the navigation
pane comes from desktop databases.

Show the navigation pane
1 Click the Settings/Actions charm in the Table Selector to see the
available options.
2 Click Navigation Pane on the Home tab of the ribbon.
3 Use the Search box to filter the results.
4 Right-click a table to see options similar to those available from the
Table Selector.
5 Click each view that is displayed for a specific table. These are
the different views of the table that Access has automatically
constructed.

TIP If you select the Open shortcut on the Table Selector
menu or select View Data from the options on the Table
Selector, you can type data directly into your tables without the need
to display the views in a web browser.
TIP After Access has automatically created views of your data,
if you add new fields to the table, the views automatically
change to include your new fields—a very powerful feature. But if you
edit the views, this capability is lost. This balances the needs of people
who want Access to control the layouts with those users who want finer
control of the layouts.
CAUTIon If you click Edit, you will not change the table design,
but you will change the design of the selected view. We will look
at the View Layout features in Section 3, “Modifying a Web App.”
