Chapter 10. Using Forms > Printing Forms

Printing Forms

You can use a form to print information from a table or query. When you design the form, you can specify different header and footer information for the printed version. You can also specify which controls are visible. For example, you might define some gridlines that are visible on the printed form but are not displayed on the screen.

An interesting form to print in the LawTrack Contacts database is the frmContactSummaryXmpl form. Open the form, and then click the Print Preview button on the toolbar or choose the Print Preview command from the File menu. Click the Zoom button and scroll to the top of the first page. You should see a screen that looks like the one shown in Figure 10-29. Notice that the form footer that you saw earlier in Figure 10-1 does not appear in the printed version. In fact, this form has one set of headers and footers designed for printing and another set for viewing the form on the screen.
