- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Adam Wilbert and I would like to welcome you to Access 2010: Forms and Reports in Depth. In this course, we're going to explore the inner-workings of two highly configurable objects inside an Access database. With forms, I'll show you how to create easy to use data entry points that interface with your data tables. We'll work with controls and layouts in design views, as well as explore Access's extensive property sheets, where we can fine tune their behavior, appearance and interactivity. Reports use many of the same tools and techniques as forms and they're great for preparing data for the printed page.

With reports, we'll look at grouping data into categories while leveraging header and footer sections to organise your report structure and make them easier to read. We'll build reports from scratch, that are tied to query record sources for increased flexibility and we'll hook them all back into a form based navigation system, to help end users' move around your database and accomplish tasks, without having to know anything about its inner structure. So thank you for joining me; now, let's dig into Access 2010: Forms and Reports in Depth.
