Closing and Saving a Database
When you’re done using a database file, you can either close it or exit Access
altogether. Access gives you two options for closing a database:
Close a single database table.
Close the entire Access database file.
Closing a database table
Closing a single database table simply removes the data from view. After you
close a database table, you can open another one. (You don’t have to close a
database table to open another one, but if you know you won’t need to view a
particular database table, you might as well close it to get it out of the way.)
To close a database table, follow these steps:
1. Right-click the database table tab that you want to close.
A pop-up menu appears.
2. Choose Close.
Access closes your chosen database table.
If you choose Close All, you can close all open database tables so you won’t
have to right-click each tab and close the tables one at a time.
