    Quick Data Entry Form

    I'm trying the quick entry form accessed from the quick menu icon for "Form." When I display the form, all the boxes for every field are very wide (see attached image). So, the form width doesn't fit on the screen. I don't see any way to format the field widths and haven't been able to find any discussion of this.

    The form should autosize to the maximum cell width of your data table.
    Adjust your cell width and check your zoom setting.

    That did it. All fields expand to the length of the longest cell. Thanks. Add a new record appends it to the end of the table. Interesting that it copies formulas from the previous row to the new record.
