give the printout to a staff member as a reminder to look for the new contract for this
customer when it comes in.
Previewing and Printing Selected Form Records
Access prints as many form records as can fit on a printed page. If only part of a form
record fits on the bottom of a page, the remainder of the record prints on the next page.
Access allows you to print all pages or a range of pages. In addition, you can print the
currently selected form record.
Before printing record 41, the record for Lily’s Boutique, you’ll preview the form
record to see how it will look when printed.
To preview the form and print the data for record 41:
1. Click the Previous record navigation button
to redisplay record 41.
