Getting Started With Forms

Quick terminology note

In the following procedures, we'll use the term control. A control is an object on a form that connects with some field in a table or query, allowing you to enter data for that field through the form. Examples of controls are text boxes, drop-down lists, and check boxes. By default, the forms you create with AutoPilot will contain mostly labels and text boxes. The labels tell you the name of the field, and the text boxes let you enter data in the field.

Introduction to Forms

Forms let you create a graphical environment for working with your data sources. You can create forms that show all fields in a data source, or you can create forms that show only specific fields. For example, you could create a form that lets you view and modify only name and email address information for your contacts, or use a query to create a form for only certain records.
