Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a customer form, part of Access 2007: Forms and Reports.
So far we've taken a look at how we can create navigation forms to move around…our database, we've created reference forms in our employee directory,…and we've created a form that looks up orders that include a particular product.…Let's now create a form that could be use to input records into our data tables.…We'll create a form that can be used to use to capture information about our new…customers and we'll make use of a property of the form called Data Entry.…This time, instead of creating a form from scratch, we'll make a use of one of…the shortcuts in Access and that's creating a form built off a table we have…selected in our navigation pane. I'll go ahead and select our DirectCustomers…table, go to the Create tab, and press Form.…
Now Access built us a quick form based off of our DirectCustomers table. If I…scroll down we'll see that includes a subform down here, this gathering order information.…We're going to use this as a basis for our form. We are going to get rid of the…elements that we don't need.…
