    When entering in data my screen is in "Datasheet view" put we need it in
    table view. When we click on "View" the option to change to table view is not
    there.

    Hello,

    Are you entering date into a datasheet through the "table" menu?

    What do you mean by "table view"? If it is a form, then you will have to
    create one.

    What exactly do you want different? Data sheet view is very close to a
    table view.

    Don't confuse data STORAGE with data PRESENTATION. They are two
    different features.

    Data is stored in tables (whether it's entered from a single form,
    continuous form, datasheet-view form or directly from the table
    datasheet). The view has NO effect on what's actually stored; once you
    have data in a table, you can view it any way you like - just base a
    Form (for onscreen viewing) or Report (for printing) on the table.

    Note that tables are *not* designed for data presentation, and have
    very limited capabilities in that line. It's best to design a custom
    Form or Report instead.
