Creating Forms

If you’ve ever visited a Web site that asked you to fill out your name and email address, then you’ve used a form. Forms offer a great way to capture specific pieces of information from multiple sources. With Windows Journal, you can create forms that accept handwritten capture areas. The downside to creating forms this way is that the data will not feed into a database automatically. Forms filled out like this will be better used for printing or for later reference, not as a front-end to a database.

That said, it is often useful to be able to use the Tablet PC the same way as a paper pad. Forms can then be emailed more easily than faxing or copying. Using a form like this can help you eliminate the paper forms that you would otherwise use. Since you can search on ink, this is still a step above paper. This could be a class notes form—something that you don’t want to put in a database.
