Seeing How Forms and Reports Are Secretly Related
Access provides several ways to create forms. The method you use depends
on whether you want Access to do the work, whether you want complete
control of what you see, or whether you want some combination of laziness
and control.
Take a look at the Forms group on the Create tab of the Ribbon to see the
ways that you can create forms. Table 1-1 explains what each button does.
