Chapter 21. Taking Charge of Forms > Pop-Up Forms Go Beyond the Message Box

Pop-Up Forms Go Beyond the Message Box

Parameter queries work as record sources for reports as well as forms. However, there are times when your needs go beyond parameters and message boxes. Sure, you can input values using parameters and input boxes, but what if you need 10 items in one field for a report?

How does a pop-up form differ from a regular Access form? Pop-up forms stay on top of all other forms and objects, whether the objects are active or not. Another difference is that record navigation buttons are not as important on pop-up forms because they often function as menus and dialog boxes that request information from the user.
