Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a header and some polish, part of Access 2007: 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'll start by adding a Header section that will appear at the top of our form…so that 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 the…values change as we move things around and make selections.…Now I've got the EmployeeDirectory open; it's the same form that I saved…from the last movie.…I'm going to switch into Design View, which is now really easy because I adjusted…those properties to only show Form View and Design View.…
So now it's just a toggle button instead of having to go to this drop-down menu.…I'll toggle into Design View and I'm going to open up the Property Sheet.…If you remember, the shortcut key is either F4, Alt+Enter, or you can click on…the button up here on the Ribbon.…I'm going to click on the F4 key to toggle my Property Sheet open.…
