Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting the default value, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- When you have a field that'll commonly contain…the same information record after record,…you can specify a default value…to appear when entering in the record.…A default value will allow you…to simply skip over that field while typing.…It'll allow you to automatically…input the most common information.…Of course, if you'd like to change it, you can.…The default value is simply a suggestion.…Let's go ahead and try adding one to our Guests table,…and I'll do that by going over here to the navigation pane,…right-clicking on the Guests table here,…and opening it straight into Design view.…Now, I want to add a default value to our country code here.…
Perhaps, I've analyzed our table, and I found out…that most of our guests come from the United States,…so I want to specify that as the default value for country.…In order to do that, I'm going to go down here…to the Field properties, and I'm going to find…the field called Default Value here.…I'll click here in the cell to the right of that,…and that'll activate the build button way…
