Form.DataEntry Property (Access)

You can use the DataEntry property to specify whether a bound form opens to allow data entry only. The Data Entry property doesn't determine whether records can be added; it only determines whether existing records are displayed. Read/write Boolean.

expression .DataEntry

expression A variable that represents a Form object.

This property can be set in any view.

The DataEntry property has an effect only when the AllowAdditions property is set to Yes.

Setting the DataEntry property to Yes by using Visual Basic has the same effect as clicking Data Entry on the Records menu. Setting it to No by using Visual Basic is equivalent to clicking Remove Filter/Sort on the Records menu.
