Before you begin

Design tables for a new Access 2007 database
Create tables for a new Access 2007 database
Build relationships for a new Access 2007 database
Create queries for a new Access 2007 database

This is the fifth course in a series that shows you how to learn Access from the ground up by creating an asset-tracking database. So far, you've built tables, relationships, and queries, and your coworkers have started using the database.

Now it's time to create forms. They make it easier and faster to enter and understand your data. They also put an attractive face on your database, and they let other users view only the data you want them to see.

This course explains how to create several types of forms. It builds on the other courses in the series, but also assumes you're a beginner.
