Adding data to the list table

List tables do not require a form. Instead, add their data directly to the table. In this example, use the names of the two people with a bank card and Cash for cash purchases.

  1. In the main database window, click on the Tables icon. Right-click on Payment Type and select Open from the context menu.
  2. Enter Dan in the first row. Use the tab key to move to the second row.
  3. Enter Kevin in the second row.
  4. Enter Cash in the third row.
  5. Save and close the table window.
Image:Tip.pngThe Enter key can also be used to move from field entry to field entry. For this example, enter Jan. in the first Name field. Enter moves the cursor to the ID field. Enter then moves the cursor to the second Name field. The Down Arrow key can also be used to move from row to row.
Image:documentation_note.pngThe PaymentID field contains <AutoField> until you use the Enter key to move to the second row. Then it becomes a 0. As you add the entries to each row, the rows of the PaymentID field change to consecutive whole numbers. For example the first three numbers in this field are 0,1,2.
