Using a Form to View Data
In Datasheet view, you can view many records at once. If there are many fi elds, however,
only some of the fi elds in each record might be visible at a time. In Form view , where
data is displayed in a form on the screen, you usually can see all the fi elds, but only for one
record. To get the advantages from both, many database management systems allow you
to easily switch between Datasheet view and Form view while maintaining position within
the database. In Access 2007, you can view both a datasheet and a form simultaneously
using a split form.
To Create a Split Form
A split form combines both a datasheet and a form, thus giving the advantages of both views. The following
steps create a split form.
