Lesson 14. Creating a Simple Form > Creating a Form with AutoForm

Creating a Form with AutoForm

The easiest way to create a form is with AutoForm. AutoForm simply plunks the fields from a single table into a form; it's the least flexible way but it's very convenient. Follow these steps

  1. From the Database window, click the Forms object type.

  2. Click the New button. The New Form dialog box appears (see Figure 14.1).

    Figure 14.1. Choose how you want to create your form.

  3. Click AutoForm: Columnar to create a columnar form (the most popular kind). This creates a form that contains your fields in a single column, from top to bottom. Or click AutoForm: Tabular for a form that resembles a table, or AutoForm: Datasheet for a form that resembles a datasheet.

  4. Open the drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog box and choose the table or query to use as the source of the form's data.

  5. Click OK. The form appears, ready for data entry.
