Chapter 7. Creating and Using a Form > Creating a Form in Design View

Creating a Form in Design View

Although the Form Wizard is a step up from AutoForm in terms of control, the resulting forms still might not satisfy your needs. For example, you might want to build a custom form that mirrors as closely as possible an equivalent paper form. If the Access form resembles the paper form, the person using the form to enter data will feel more comfortable with it and will be less likely to make mistakes.

For maximum form flexibility, you need to use the form design window, which gives you total control over the form, including the positioning of the controls, the formatting of the text, the colors, and much more.
