Lesson 14. Creating a Simple Form > Creating a Form from Scratch

Creating a Form from Scratch

The most powerful and difficult way to create a form is with Form Design view. In this view, you decide exactly where to place each field and how to format it.

Caution

Don't Use the Shortcut Now You might be tempted to double-click the Create form in Design view shortcut in the Forms list, but if you go this route, rather than the route outlined in the following steps, you won't have the opportunity to select a table. You can select the table later from the form's RecordSource property, but that's rather advanced. It's best to stick with the steps here, if you're a beginner.
