Updating Field Properties

When you make property changes to a field in Table Design view, you can choose to update the corresponding property of controls on forms and reports that are bound to the field. When a bound control inherits a field property change, the Property Update Options button appears in Table Design view, where you can choose the Update command. If a bound control doesn't inherit the field's property change, Access doesn't update the control's property.
