Improving
presentations with
forms
In this section:
While a datasheet provides a flexible presentation of data, forms offer
Creating continuous, datasheet, and
split forms
Working with form views and control
layouts
Creating a parent/child and a single
record form with the Form Wizard
Altering link master and link child
fields
Controlling editing and data entry in
a form
Changing the source of data for a
form
Organizing your database with a
navigation form
Adding fields to form in design and
layout views
Adding a subform to an existing form
more sophisticated capabilities. Subject to certain rules, one form (a
subform) can be embedded in another form and then they can be linked
together such that when you page through records on the main form, only
related information is displayed in the subform.
You can switch forms to present data as a datasheet, single record, or a
continuous list of records. When you switch a form to Datasheet view, it
offers extra features that extend a normal datasheet—for example, to use
conditional formatting. Forms can display data from tables, SQL
expressions, or queries.
A navigation form is a special form that you can use to organize the
display of other forms; this allows you to create an application where a user
can make menu selections to undertake different activities.
You can also display a form in form view, where you work with the data;
layout view, which allows you to adjust the layout while viewing the data;
or design view, which allows you to make more sophisticated adjustments
to the form but does not display the data while you are making the design
changes.
