Adding Objects to the Favorites Folder

Some of the tables in the zoo database need to be queried or to have their data updated more often than others. For example, tblAnimalFeed needs to be updated every time the amount of a type of feed that the zoo keeps in storage changes. tblMedicalTreatments needs to be updated whenever a veterinarian visits. Adding these tables to the Favorites folder in the Project window provides you with quick access to these tables.

1.In the Online Browser, right-click table tblAnimalFeed and select Add to/Remove from Favorites from the context menu, or select the table and press Ctrl+F2.
