Applying Office themes
pane to a form, Access will choose an appropriate control with which
to display the data. However, you might want to change that choice of
control. A simple example would be deciding whether to use a combo or
list box.
A form that is based on a table or query is called a bound form . On a
bound form, you can add either controls attached to your fields (bound
controls) or controls to gather and present other information (unbound
controls). It is also possible to have a blank form or dialog form, which
is not bound, and on these types of forms, you can add only unbound
controls.
The control box provides the Use Control Wizards (Default Selected)
option, which assists you in configuring the control. To follow the steps in
each exercise in this section, you should have this option selected.
