Chapter 14. Creating and Using Access Fo... > Setting Form Appearance Properties

Setting Form Appearance Properties

Access offers an extraordinary number of formatting properties that you can use to customize the appearance of your forms and the control objects they contain. You also can apply most of the property settings described in the following sections to subforms.

Default Values for Forms

You can change some of the default values used in the creation of all forms by choosing Tools, Options and clicking the Forms/Reports tab (see Figure 14.11). You can create a form to use as a template and replace the standard (Normal) template, and you can determine how objects are displayed when chosen. The effects of these options are described in the sections that follow. The options that you or other Access users choose in the Options dialog are saved for each user ID in the MSysOptions table of the current System.mdw workgroup system file.
