Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a header and some polish, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- We're going to wrap up our…Rolodex-style employee directory here…and add a final bit of polish…using the Property Sheet to modify…some additional objects within our form.…We're going to do this by adding a header section…that will appear at the top of our form…so our end users will immediately know…what they're looking at.…As we go through this, keep an eye on the property sheet…and you'll see that the values change…as we move things around and make selections.…So, let's go ahead and take our employee directory…and switch it into the design view.…Now, I'm gonna add a new section…to the top of my form.…I'm gonna find this section here called Detail…and you'll see that it's pointing…to this section over here.…
I'm gonna right click on that and choose Form Header/Footer.…That'll add two new sections to my form.…The header up here at the top…and the footer down here at the bottom.…Now, we're not gonna be using the footer section…so I'm gonna move my cursor down to the very bottom of it…and I'm gonna click and drag it up…
Then the course dives into reports: creating efficient and readable layouts, grouping data into categories, tying reports to queries, and using conditional formatting rules to highlight key takeaways from the data. Finally, Adam demonstrates how to link forms and reports together and print your results, and introduces unique ways to save time filling out paperwork and generating form letters.
