We covered a lot of ground in this chapter, and yet we did not see everything that you can do in form design mode. This is one of the areas of Access where there is much more depth than we can cover in an introductory book. As you're working with forms in design mode, keep these points in mind:

  • AutoFormats enable you to quickly change the appearance of a form.

  • The Field List can be used to add new bound controls to a form.

  • Both forms and the controls on forms have properties that control their appearances and behaviors. You can alter these properties by manipulating the controls directly or by changing values in the Properties window.

  • The Toolbox enables you to add new controls of various types to your Access forms.

  • Sections and subforms provide more advanced ways of managing the design of forms.
