Split forms are a new feature that can make it easier to view, enter, and change single records or large amounts of data. A split form combines a form with a datasheet. If you only need to enter or change a single record, use the form. If you need to enter or view a lot of data, use the datasheet.
In the Navigation Pane, select the table or query that you want to use as the data source for the split form.
Click the Create
tab, and in the Forms
group, click Split Form
. Access creates the new form and opens it in Layout view, which gives you a chance to change it.
Optionally, change your form. For example, you can easily resize the controls by clicking and dragging.
Note You may need to use Design view to change some of the properties of a split form, and links in the Quick Reference Card take you to more information.
