"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When you change a record, it is marked as dirty. When you move the focus off the dirty record by clicking another record, hitting a next record button, closing a form, and other ways, your change is saved automatically. There is no need to manually save.
