I use Access for contact mgmt. database. I have my "main" table that has all my client info. If I create a form (looks like spreadsheet) and it is populated by the names in the table and I need to delete names from the FORM, not the original table, does it delete also from the main table?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes – that would delete the records from the original table
I believe that you can create a query excluding the rows you don’t want to see and build the form over the view.

    Yes, good comment by Philipl1jb. In Access database, if you delete the record from a query then the record is deleted from the main table. Same is true for changing/modifying the query result – it will change the main table. You can filter the record set – by opening the query in Design mode and selecting proper condition parameters.
