To finish creating the form using the Form Wizard:
1. Click PositionID in the Available Fields list box (if necessary), and then click the
ton to move the field to the Selected Fields list box.
2. Repeat Step 1 to select the PositionTitle , EmployerID , Wage , HoursPerWeek , StartDate ,
EndDate , Openings , and Experience fields, in that order. Remember, you can also double-
click a field to move it from the Available Fields list box to the Selected Fields list box.
3. Click the Next button to display the second Form Wizard dialog box, in which you select a
layout for the form. See Figure 4-2.
Choosing a layout for the form
The layout choices are Columnar, Tabular, Datasheet, Justified, PivotTable, and PivotChart.
A sample of the selected layout appears on the left side of the dialog box.
4. Click each of the option buttons and review the corresponding sample layout.
The Tabular and Datasheet layouts display the fields from multiple records at one time,
whereas the Columnar and Justified layouts display the fields from one record at a time.
The PivotTable and PivotChart layouts display summary and analytical information. Elsa
thinks the Columnar layout is the appropriate arrangement for displaying and updating
data in the table, so you’ll choose this layout.
5. Click the Columnar option button (if necessary), and then click the Next button. Access
displays the third Form Wizard dialog box, in which you choose a style for the form. A sam-
ple of the selected style appears in the box on the left. If you choose a style, which is called
an AutoFormat , and decide you’d prefer a different one after the form is created, you can
change it. See Figure 4-3.
Trouble? Don’t be concerned if a different form style is selected in your dialog box
instead of the one shown in Figure 4-3. The dialog box displays the most recently used
style, which might be different on your computer.
