AutoFormat is a quick and easy way to apply preset formats to a form.
Would you like your form to have a blueprint effect? A fancy, blended style? Or an international look and feel? With AutoFormat, touch-up is practically a one-touch process.
Access offers several predesigned AutoFormats. Each contains a style and color for fonts and borders, plus a background effect for entire forms.
You can apply an AutoFormat to a single control, several controls, a section, or the entire form. In Design view, you would select what you want to change, and then click AutoFormat on the Format menu and make your choices.
You have seen these predesigned formats earlier, as the options for creating a form using an AutoForm. If you apply an AutoFormat to any form, that AutoFormat will also become the format for all new AutoForms, until you make another change in AutoFormat.
