CHAPTER
Move a Field in a Form
You can move a field to another location on your form. For example, you might move a field to
accommodate the order in which data is entered in the form. When you click a field label to select
it, Access selects only the field label. Because you will probably want to move both the field label and
the field contents, you can more easily move both of them if you select both at the same time.
Although you can move a field in either Design view or Layout view, you might find it easier to make
changes to your form in Layout view.

5 Click and drag the field label and
