Chapter 13. Customizing Forms

In this chapter

  • Working with form properties

  • Creating your own controls

  • Using sections and subforms effectively

By now you’ve got a good handle on how to manage the data in your Access applications. You can create and customize tables to store your data, and you know how to build the queries to present that data as information. Now it’s time to turn your attention back to the user interface of your Access database. So far, you’ve let Access do most of the work of building forms for you. In this chapter, we’ll show you how to tap the power of form design view to make your Access forms more usable and flexible and to make them look the way you want. This is also a good time for you to learn about the object dependencies task pane, which helps you keep track of how everything in your database fits together.
