Chapter 13. Advanced Form Design > Creating Multiple-Page Forms

Creating Multiple-Page Forms

As you’ve seen, Microsoft Access makes it easy to display a lot of related information about one subject in a single form, either by using a query as the source of the form or by displaying the related information in a subform. As described in the previous section, if you have too much information to fit in a single, screen-sized form you can use the tab control. Another way to handle the problem is to split the form into multiple pages.

You can create a form that’s up to 22 logical inches high. If you’re working on a basic 800-by-600-pixel screen, you cannot see more than about 4.5 logical inches vertically at one time (if toolbars are displayed). If the information you need to make available in the form won’t fit in that height, you can split the form into multiple pages by using a page break control. When you view the form, you can use the Page Up and Page Down keys to move easily through the pages.
