Chapter 13. Designing Custom Multitable ... > Using the Toolbox to Add Controls

Using the Toolbox to Add Controls

Experimenting is the best way of learning how to use a new computer application. No matter how well the product's documentation—or a book such as this—describes a process, no substitute exists for trying the methods. This axiom holds true whether you are designing a form or writing program code. The Microsoft programmers who created Access cleverly designed the user interface for creating custom forms so that the interface is intuitive and flexible. After you complete the examples in this chapter, you probably will agree that this statement is true.

The examples in this chapter use the Personnel Actions table that you created in Chapter 4, "Working with Access Databases and Tables," and two queries: qryPersonnelActions (which you create in the next section) and qryPersonnelActionsSubform (which you created in Chapter 12, "Creating and Using Forms"). The data dictionary needed to create the Personnel Actions table appears in Appendix C.
