I didn't  hear any reference to tables and data entry in that video.

To make data entry less complicated on a data entry form, you should use tabs for the various categories of data for the record you are creating. Tabbed forms are also great for related sub-forms.

By "large tables", do you mean a table with a lot of COLUMNS, or one with a lot of ROWS?

Lots of columns can indicate poor table design. There's really no way to resolve this other than a rework of the structure, which often means a rework of the other objects in the database. You'd have to give more information about your structure, of course ...

Lots of rows is generally not an issue with Access, as it's pretty good with fetching data as needed.
