SQL Developer is mostly geared for developers, not for end users. Which are you? It appears you are likely an end user because of the terminology you use ("edit records"). Oracle is a relational database management system (RDBMS). It contains rows of data, not records. It is not a GUI application like MS Access or Excel. I sincerely hope you are not accessing a production database because you are likely to cause real problems without even knowing it. I suggest you get some real training on databases before going much further.
maybe you really want ORACLE Discoverer.
