Another way to make a data entry form is by using the Form Wizard. Click one time on the Customers table, click on the Create tab, then on this Form Wizard button. You don't have to click on the table first, but if you do, that table will show up right here automatically. On the left, you have a list of all the fields in the table. If you only want some of them, you can click on them in the order you want and click this arrow to move them over to the right-hand side. If you want all of them, like we do, click on this double arrow, and they will all move over at once.
Drop this down and change it to Orders, and let's also bring over all of the order information. Click Next. Access automatically recognized the relationship between the Customers and the Orders and set them up in a sub-form. Next, we are going to leave it on the default the Datasheet. Click Next again. Let's name the field Customers Order Form. We will leave the sub-form with the name Orders:Subform so that when it's listed over here in the forms, it will be easy to identify.
Access now gives us a choice to open the form, to use it, or to modify the design. We are going to open it and click Finish. So now we have a form with all the customer information above and their orders down below, although we will need to do some resizing and realigning of the fields, and we will learn how to do that in future lessons. Using the Form Wizard takes most of the work out of creating a form, selecting the fields, and laying them out for you.
