Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a customer form, part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
So far we've taken a look at creating navigation forms to move around our…database, we've created a reference form 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 can be used to import records into our data tables.…We'll create a form that can be used to capture information about new customers.…I'm going to close our Main Menu window here and I'm going to click once on my…DirectCustomers table and go to the Create tab and by clicking on Form we'll…build a quick form that I can then edit.…So, there's my form here, it's showing me data at the top and if I scroll down I…can see that Access automatically put in a subform.…
Let's go into Design View.…I'll change my View to Design View and we'll clean this up.…First, I'm going to scroll down and I'm going to get rid of that subreport.…I'll click on it and press Delete.…I'm going to scroll back up.…Next, I want to get rid of these headers.…So, I'll click on the Detail section and then right-click and turn off…
