2. 2. Guided Practice: Modify Forms Teacher Demonstration Student Name Period Date GUIDED PRACTICE: MODIFY FORMS In this activity you will follow along with your teacher to add a query-based subform to a form and make modifications to the form and subform. You will need the B&B database used earlier in this objective and well as two other tables that you will create according to the directions below. A query will be created to gather information for the subform from the Reservations and Prices tables and link it to the main form. Part I: Add tables to the B&B database, retrieve data from another table, and set property values. 1. Open the B&B database and create a database table using the following information. Save the table as Prices. Field Name Data Type Description ID AutoNumber Inn Lookup Double Occupancy, Regular Room, 2 Queen Double Currency Sized Beds 2. Set the ID field as the primary key 3.
