Tutorial Summary
In this tutorial, you examined general form design guidelines and learned how to use them
in planning a custom form. You learned how to change a lookup field back to a Text field,
to print database relationships, and to use the Documenter. You created a datasheet form,
a multiple items form, and a split form, and you modified a form in Layout view. After creat-
ing a blank bound form, you learned how to add bound controls to a form, and how to
select, move, align, resize, delete, and rename controls. You also learned how to add and
delete form headers and footers, how to add a combo box to display and update a field
and a combo box to find records, how to add a subform to a form, how to add calculated
controls to a subform and a main form, and how to change the tab order in a form.
Finally, you learned how to improve the visual appearance of a form.
