Creating Records

There are different ways to create a new record depending on the window currently displayed.
When you have opened a catalog to display the record list, you may start creating a new record by clicking the "New Record" button from application toolbar.

You may also right click your mouse on any record list (see picture below) to open the popup menu and select the menu command appropriate for your intention.

Tip: If an empty form (without input boxes) is displayed after clicking the new record button, this means that you either haven't created any fields for current catalog (see creating fields) or you haven't placed existing fields to the data form (see designing forms).

Entering Record Information

Entering record information completed by typing the information text to the boxes and clicking save button from application toolbar. If there is a field (of type relationship) which directs you to choose from existing records from another catalog, SpeedBase will guide you by suggesting records which begin with the letters you typed in.

If there are menu buttons on left side which are assigned to display lists of related information, they will become available after you save the record information for the first time. After then, you will be able to navigate to the displays thru menus and populate the list for related information by right clicking your mouse.
