Using Quick Operations
Often, when you are viewing records in form or browse view, you would like to do a quick Operation on the data (such as Update the value in a selected field in the records that are currently selected), or copy the selected records to a new table, or move the selected records to a new table. You have no need to save the Operation definition for future use. In these cases, the ad-hoc, quick Operations are ideal because they generally involve far fewer steps than defining a new saved Operation. When viewing records in a form or Browse, you can use the Records menu for quick access to the following ad-hoc Operations.
The following ad-hoc Operations are available:
Append records from another table into the table you are currently viewing.
Copy the currently selected records in the form or browse window to a new, or an existing table.
Delete, mark or un-mark the currently selected records in the form or browse window.
Move the selected records to another table. The records are copied to the destination table, and then deleted from the source table.
Update the data in up to five fields in the selected records.
