Default Test Possible Before Saving?

ACCESS 2007

If I have made some changes (for example modifying a field to make sure that
values are required and / or creating a lookup for a field to name just 2
possibilities) is there a way to ensure that the above changes are tested
before I save the changes I've made?

TIA for any replies.

trip,
No.
(You don't indicate whether your referring to a table or a form)
You make your changes in Design Mode, and test in
Form/Datasheet View.

If you're concerned that you might save some changes that might not
work,
then make a backup copy of your original object before you begin, and save
your
changes under a diferent name... until fully tested. If OK... save to the
original
object name.

I was referring to a table and not a form; thanks for the answer.
