  • Use the Form Wizard • A form is an Access database object that allows you to arrange the fields of a record in any layout so you can enter, edit, and delete records • One way to create a form is by using the Form Wizard • The Wizard asks you questions to determine the information you want Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 4
  • Form Views Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 5
  • Create a Split Form • The benefit of a split form is that the upper pane allows you to display the fields of one record in any arrangement, and the lower pane maintains a datasheet view of the first few records, which you can navigate very quickly Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 6
  • Form Creation Tools Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 7
  • Example of a table in a split form Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 8
  • Use Form Layout View • Layout View lets you make some design changes to a form while you are browsing the data: • Move and resize controls • Add or delete a field on the form • Filter and sort data • Change formatting characteristics, such as fonts and colors Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 9
  • Use Form Layout View Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 10
  • Mouse Pointer Shapes in Form Layout View Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 11
  • Add Fields to a Form • Can be done in Layout View or Design View using Field List window • To add a field: drag it from the Field List to the location you want • When you add a new field, 2 controls are created: label and text box • To delete a field: click to select the field, then press [Delete] Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 12
  • Field List in Form Layout View Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 13
  • Bound vs. Unbound Controls • Every item on a form is a control, such as text boxes and labels • Bound controls display data • Unbound controls do not display data Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 14
  • Modify Form Controls • When you modify controls, you change their properties (characteristics) • All of the control characteristics you can modify are stored in the control’s Property Sheet Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 15
  • Using the Property Sheet Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 16
  • Common Form Controls Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 17
  • Create Calculations • To create a calculation in a text box, you enter an expression instead of a field name in the Control Source property • An expression is a combination of field names, operators (such as +, –, /, and *), and functions (such as Sum, Count, or Avg) that results in a single value Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 18
  • Creating Calculations • Expression: an equal sign and a combination of symbols • Square brackets must surround a field name in an expression • Field name must be typed exactly as it was in Table Design View (except for capitalization) Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 19
  • Adding a Text Box to Calculate a Value Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 20
  • Sample Expressions Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 21
  • Modify Tab Order • Tab Order: the order the focus moves as you press [Tab] • Tab Stop: determines whether the field accepts the focus and therefore determines where the focus moves as you press [Tab] • All text boxes and combo boxes have a tab stop and are included in the tab order Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 22
  • Tab Order Dialog Box Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 23
  • Insert an Image • Examples are pictures, logos, clip art • The form section you place it in determines where it will appear on the form • For example, determine whether you want the image at the top of the form or next to each record Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 24
  • Form Sections Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 25
  • Adding an Image to the Form Header Section Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated 26
