Forms created with AutoForm can be edited using the Form Design view, which is discussed later in this lesson. When you attempt to close the AutoForm, you are asked whether you want to save it. If you do, click Yes . Then, enter a name for the form into the Save As box and click OK .
Create an AutoForm in the Table Datasheet View You can also create an AutoForm while you are working on a table in the Datasheet view. Click the AutoForm button on the Table Datasheet toolbar. A new form appears, based on the table's fields.
