    Once I have all my tables and my realtionships set up, is it best to start
    creating the forms and enter the data or should I start entering the data I
    have into the tables? How does this work?

    Thank you, Karen

    If you want, you can enter data right into the table. A form makes it more
    "user friendly" like if you are entering the data from a paper form, you can
    make the input form look similar. But a form is not required

    You should create a few records to be able to test your queries and the
    actions that you may have objects on the forms to perform.
    Use common and extreme data examples so as to fully exercise everything.

    Karen,

    Yes, it is highly recommended that you create suitable Forms for
    entry/editing/viewing of your data. This is the purpose of forms in an
    Access database. Whereas it is theoretically possible to enter data
    directly into tables, especially in a very simple database, in practice
    this carries a number of dangers and difficulties. It is best to regard
    that Tables are for the purpose of data storage, and should not be seen
    or accessed during normal usage of the database.
