Exploring Forms

Access tables are dense lists of raw information. If you create a database that only you will use, you will probably be very comfortable working directly with tables. But if you create a database that will be viewed and edited by people who don’t know much about it—and don’t necessarily want to know about it—working with your tables might be overwhelming. To solve this problem, you can design forms to guide users through your database, making it easier for them to enter, retrieve, display, and print information.

A form is essentially a window in which you can place controls that either give users information or accept information that they enter. Access provides a toolbox that includes many standard Windows controls, such as labels, text boxes, option buttons, and check boxes. With a little ingenuity, you can use these controls to create forms that look and work much like the dialog boxes in all Microsoft Windows applications.
