AutoFormat dialog box
A sample of the selected AutoFormat appears to the right of the Form AutoFormats list
box. The options at the bottom of the dialog box let you apply the selected AutoFormat or
just its font, color, or border.
Elsa decides that she prefers the Standard AutoFormat, because its field names and field
values are easy to read.
4. Click Standard in the Form AutoFormats list box, and then click the OK button. The
AutoFormat dialog box closes, the Standard AutoFormat is applied to the form, and the
Form window in Design view becomes the active window.
5. Click the View button for Form view on the Form Design toolbar. The form is displayed
in Form view with the new AutoFormat. See Figure 4-7.

on the Form View toolbar to save the modified form.
Elsa wants to use the Position Data form to view some data in the Position table. To
view data, you need to navigate the form. As you learned in Tutorial 1, you navigate a
form in the same way that you navigate a table datasheet. Also, the navigation mode and
editing mode keystroke techniques you used with datasheets in Tutorial 2 are the same
when navigating a form.
