Starting a Single-Level Page from Scratch

The Page Wizard and AutoPage have a limited repertoire of page design features, so creating a DAP from scratch or from an existing Web page is an alternative when you want custom page features or to create a DAP to update table values.

Opening new DAP by double-clicking the Create a Data Access Page in Design View item opens the page designer with a page that has the default <TITLE> and <H1> text elements, as well as a single unbound section that's 6 inches wide and 2 inches deep for the U.S. (1033) locale. You use the Field List to bind the page to a Recordset through a record navigation control and add text box and dropdown list controls for lookup fields to the page. Alternatively, you can display data in bound span controls.
