Entering Information Quickly in a Computerized Form
A form is a means of soliciting and recording information. You can use forms
like the one shown in Figure 1-8 to enter data faster and to reduce data-entry
errors. Instead of entering all the information by hand, you or a data-entry
clerk can choose entries from combo boxes, drop-down lists, and date
pickers. You save time because you don’t have to enter all the information by
hand, and the information you enter is more likely to be accurate because
you choose it from prescribed lists instead of entering it yourself.

form
To create a form like the one shown in Figure 1-8, start by creating a
template for your form and putting data-entry controls — the combo boxes,
dropdown lists, and date pickers— in the form. To fill out a form, you create a
document from the form template and go to it. These pages explain how to
create a form and use forms to record information.
