Adding Form Headers and Footers
You can use the Next and Previous buttons to flip through the files stored
in the Attachment field for the current record. The files that aren’t pictures
appear as the icons for the program that can open them (Word for
wordprocessing documents, Excel for spreadsheets, and so on). The Attachments
dialog box is where you can
Add new files to the record.
Remove a file from the record.
Open the file by using the default program for the type of file.
Save the file with the name you specify.
Save all the files attached to the current record.
Adding Form Headers and Footers
The part of the form that you’ve been working with so far is the Detail
section. In Design view, a Detail divider bar runs along the top of the form (refer
to Figure 3-10, earlier in this chapter).
You may want to display information at the top and bottom of your form,
however. Yes, you can just put controls at the top and bottom of the Detail
section of your form, and most people do just that. If the window displaying
the form is too small for the whole form to fit in it, however, the information
may not always be visible.
Access’s Form Wizard creates forms that include header and footer sections.
Figure 3-13 shows the Header section that the Form Wizard creates, gussied
up a little bit by options available on the contextual menu that pops up when
you right-click anywhere within the form. When you switch to Form view by
clicking the View button, the controls in the header and footer sections are
always visible, no matter what the size of your Form window is.
