2.1. Make Custom Templates for Forms and Reports

Problem

When you make a new blank form, the form properties and the properties of any control placed on it use the Access defaults. You’ve decided upon a standard look for your forms and reports that is significantly different from these defaults, and you spend too much time changing control properties on every new form you create to make them match your look. You’d like some way to change the standard default values.

Solution

Access allows you to specify a particular form or report to use as a template for new forms or reports that you create. This solution lists the steps you’ll need to take to create your own template for form design. The technique is the same for form templates and report templates.
