This view of table data is called Datasheet view. Figure 1-6 shows the open Northwind Orders table in Datasheet view. Each row contains a single record with information for one order. Each column contains values for one field. Each field has a unique name and contains a specific item of data, such as the customer or employee name. The column headings show the field names. When you enter data in the table, you’re putting actual values in the cells at the intersections of rows with columns. TIP Another way to open a table is to click the right mouse button on the table name in the Tables page, and then choose Open from the shortcut menu.

When viewing data in Datasheet view, the related data is contained in a subdatasheet, which can easily be displayed. If the records shown in Datasheet view display a plus sign at the left end of the row, additional information in another table in the database is related to that record. To see this data, expand the subdatasheet by clicking the plus sign. The plus sign changes to a minus (-) sign when the subdatasheet expands. To collapse the subdatasheet, click the minus sign. You can have as many subdatasheets expanded as you want in a single Datasheet view.
