Deleting records on form


Jen Scott

I'm using one of the template databases that comes with Access (Marketing
Projects) and when I delete records from the main form, it doesn't delete
them in the table. It says the records are deleted, but when I go back in,
they re-appear. If I go to the table and delete them from there, they go
away. Is there a property on the form (other than Allow Deletions - which is
set to Yes) that would prevent the records from being deleted from the table?





Make sure the form is editable (the arrow and asterisk at the bottom are
highlighted.) Usually, if the table is editable, the form should be also. I
think there is also and Allow Edits you might look for.
