In Access 2010 Power Shortcuts, Access expert Alicia Katz Pollock shares hundreds of tips and shortcuts to vastly increase efficiency and get the full power out of Access 2010. The course includes tips for working with the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar, managing files, customizing and automating Access, rapid data entry and editing, working with tables, queries, forms, and reports, managing your database, and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.
When you create a new form, by default it shows one record at a time. But if your records have very little data, it might help to see them in one continuous stream. I am looking at my Products list in my Forms list, and I'll go over to the Design View. Open up your Property Sheet if it's not already open. I'll click in the gray bar on the left -hand side to select the entire form. You want to make sure that it says Form in this dropdown right here. Go to the Format tab, and the second option down is Default View. Right now, it says Single Form, and that's why I see one record at a time.
I'll drop this down and change it to Continuous Form, and I get a message saying: To apply this change, close and reopen the form or report. I'll close the form. I'll save the changes, and the next time I open it, all my products show all in a long list. Now note that this option is not available if your form contains a subform. But being able to switch back and forth between Single view and Continuous view, makes your forms that much more dynamic.
