Creating a New Form

You can create a new form in several ways. The most common way is to select the Forms icon from the Objects list in the Database window. You can then select the Create Form in Design View icon or the Create Form by Using Wizard icon. Another way to create a form is to click Forms in the Objects list and then click the New button on the Database window toolbar. The New Form dialog box will appear, allowing you to select from a multitude of creation options (see Figure 5.5). You can create forms from scratch by using Design view, or you can create them with the help of any one of eight wizards. I will cover the wizards briefly before moving on to the process of creating a form from scratch. Even the most experienced developers use the Form Wizard to perform certain tasks.

Figure 5.5. The New Form dialog box lets you specify the table or query to underlie the form and choose the method for creating the form.
