Form View toolbar
Trouble? The placement of the Form View and Formatting toolbars might be different on
your screen. If you want your screen to match the figures, you can use the mouse to drag a
toolbar to a new location, using the dotted line at the left edge of a toolbar. However, the
position of any toolbar does not affect your ability to complete the steps.
Trouble? The background of your form might look different from the one shown in
Figure 1-13, depending on your computer’s settings. If so, don’t worry. You will learn how
to change the form’s style later in this text. For now, continue with the tutorial.
