Chapter 4. Working with Fields > Updating Field Properties

Updating Field Properties

When you make property changes to a field in Table Design view, you can choose to update the corresponding property of controls on forms and reports that are bound to the field. When a bound control inherits a field property change, the Property Update Options button appears in Table Design view, where you can choose the Update command. If a bound control doesn't inherit the field's property change, Access doesn't update the control's property.

Update Field Properties

Display the table in Design view.

Click the field property box you want to change.

Click the General or Lookup tab, and then change a property.

If you changed the value of an inherited property, the Property Update Options button appears.

Click the Property Update Options button, and then click Update.

Select the forms or reports that contain the controls needed to be updated, and then click Yes.
