IN THIS CHAPTER

Manipulating Form Controls

Adding Labels to the Form

Adding Text Boxes to the Form

Case Study

If you want a form laid out in a certain way that either mimics the arrangement of a paper form or gives the form a design that you think will make sense for the users, the techniques you've seen so far haven't given you the tools to do the job. For example, the Form Wizards, although easy and fast, only arrange form control in a few basic designs. Using the Design view is better because you can at least click and drag the table fields and drop them anywhere you want on the form. However, if you've tried this, you've certainly noticed that the results are seldom perfect. That's because you still need to “fine tune” the controls by moving them, sizing them, formatting them, and so on.
