Form/Report Design Elements 282 With a little more work, and if you were willing to let a few values be truncated slightly, you could get three columns on the page. (Another possibility would be to decrease the font size of the controls so you could reduce the width of the columns.) To fit more columns, you reduce the sizes of Column Spacing and Width. TIP Actually, the best strategy for fitting in more columns would be to get rid of the labels. The contents of most or all of the fields are obvious, so labels are unnecessary. Conclusion This chapter covered a wide range of topics to help you create more effective forms and reports. Form and report creation might seem like a tedious affair, at best, but over time, many of the tools and procedures will become second nature to you. Access features and wizards have made form and report creation extremely efficient. Instead of attempting to edit an object that has significant problems, it is often easier to give yourself a fresh start by using a wizard or a blank form. Case Example Earlier in this chapter, you learned how to automate actions by using macros. In this example, you'll use a macro group to help you create command buttons that open sets of records in a form. Spe- cifically, you'll create buttons on an orders form to filter for regular delivery and overnight orders. This exercise also exposes you to creating and using command buttons. I haven't discussed com- mand buttons separately, but (as you'll see) you shouldn't have any trouble figuring them out on your own.
