Chapter 11. Building a Form > Starting from Scratch—A Simple Input Form

Starting from Scratch—A Simple Input Form

To start, you’ll create a simple form that accepts and displays data in the tblCompanies table in the LawTrack Contacts database. Later, you’ll create a form for the tblProducts table in this same database by using an Access form wizard. To follow along in this section, open the ContactsDataCopy.mdb database.

Building a New Form with Design Tools

To begin building a new form that allows you to display and edit data from a table, click the Tables button on the Object bar of the Database window, and then select the table that you want to use for the form. (To follow this example, select the tblCompanies table in the sample database.) Note that you can also click the Queries button and select a query to provide the data for your form. Select Form from the New Object toolbar button’s drop-down list, or choose the Form command from the Insert menu. Access opens the New Form dialog box, shown in Figure 11-3.
