Shortcut keys to quickly insert or delete a record (Microsoft Access)

You can often use shortcut keys for quick access to frequently used commands or operations.

Did you know ...

You can insert records by using a shortcut key rather than by choosing the Insert, New Record command or by clicking on the Add Record button on the toolbar.

Here's how:

  1. Open the table or form to which you want to add a record
  2. Press CTRL + + (Keep your finger on the CTRL key and press the plus sign)

To delete a record

  1. Display the record to be deleted
  2. Press CTRL + - (Keep your finger on the CTRL key and press the minus sign)

Until next week.
