Forms Versus Reports

Generally, forms are for input and reports are for output. That doesn’t mean that you can’t print using a form. There’s almost no end to its versatility. You can use it as a Grand Central Station of your application. A form can provide menus, open other objects such as other forms and tables, print reports, and a whole host of other things. As mentioned previously, you can pull multiple tables together using a query that feeds into a form.

The form gives you the functionality to view information from a broad range of perspectives. If that isn’t enough, you can easily program various objects to perform repetitive tasks. For example, with a simple mouse click, you can filter the form, look up multiple values, calculate on multiple fields, print the current record, select items from a menu, and the list goes on.
