The Form tool automatically creates a form that is bound, or connected, to a single data source, either a table or a query. You select your data source, click a button, and Access creates the form. The new form displays all the fields in the data source, but you can remove any fields that you don't want to see.
In the Navigation Pane, select the table or query that you want to use as the data source for the form.
Click the Create
tab, and in the Forms
group, click Form
. The new form opens in Layout view, which gives you a chance to change it.
Optionally, change your form. For example, you can easily remove a control that you don't need by right-clicking the control and clicking Delete
After you finish, save your work — and there's your form.
The Form tool is a good choice for smaller forms, and you'll create one in the practice. But what if you need to work with a lot of data? That's next.
