Open

Save

To write changes to the database, select the Save icon.

If changes were made, Collect! starts a database transaction and writes the changed record to the database.

If no changes have been made to the current record, this function does nothing.

OK

Selecting OK confirms what you are doing, saves any changes, and moves forward.

When you have a form open and you have edited the contents, OK saves the changes to disk and closes the form.

The opposite of OK is the Cancel or Escape command, which discards and exits whatever it is you are doing.
