I'm trying to make plans for my 2D RPG game. I originally used Excel, but it's hard to get a glance at how something is, especially since the field count measures in the dozens, mostly as simple numbers. I thought of using Word and making use of tabs, but adding and rearranging fields is time-consuming since I have to do the same thing each time dozens of times over. So, the solution I have is using Microsoft Access. I made the form, table, and query that is supposedly needed, now I just want to fill out the form for each aspect of a group, such as the list of the game's spells. I don't care for searching, filters, or any of that stuff, I just want an easy-to-see interface where I can look at the specs of spells at a quick glance, done by looking through the records. Trouble is, the "new record" button is grayed out. What do I need to do to make new records? I took a screenshot, removing confidential parts, to show you what I mean.

Any ideas what I may be missing?
