Notes: Editing Records Exercise
You are going to learn how to edit records in your database.
Edit the current value by typing "Test" into the Property ID input area. Click 'OK'.
Each Property ID has dependant data. We will now edit the Weather value in the same record to show that it was raining whilst the property was surveyed.
The list in the Weather dropdown box is populated with all of the entered values in that column.
The same applies to any column in your database. Click 'OK'.
The bottom window pane details specific Items associated with the selected record in the top window pane.
You will notice a 'Question heading change' error message pop up restricting you from changing the Item name.
The Item name is the one column in your database that cannot be edited. There are too many questions that refer to each Item i.e. the description, condition, lifespan etc.
Changing the Item name would only confuse your database.
Congratulations! you have learnt how to edit records in your database.
The Form view is also useful for editing your collected data in a fast and efficient manner. See Using the Form View.
