How to Edit a Record in a Form


The Form Edit function allows you to edit, in a form view:

  • All fields in a single record (the record that the cursor is on when there is no Selected region).

  • All fields highlighted in a single record.

  • All fields highlighted in multiple records.

Multiple Record Selection

If more than one record is Selected, then the first or top record is displayed. Any changes made will be copied to all selected records (they will become identical for the highlighted region). Highlighting multiple records followed by Form Editing is a quick way to fill multiple records with the same data.


  1. Select data to be edited (for multiple records or a subset of a single record).

  2. Press CTRL+E or select Form Edit from the Context Menu or Edit Menu. You will be displayed the Form Edit dialog box with the option of editing each field in your selection. Edit as required.
