Learn how to modify the tab order in forms, both manually and using auto-order forms. Author Jen McBEe will explore formatting print layouts, sorting records, focusing on the skills you may be asked to demonstrate on the Access 2013 MOS Exam.
- [Voiceover] We have been working hard…on creating some really cool forms.…And now it's time to talk about formatting our forms.…On your Access 2013 MOS exam,…you'll probably be asked to modify a tab order.…Sometimes when we insert or move fields around,…the tab order gets out of wack.…Which means we might start at the top of the form,…and we start tabbing through to get down…to the next field,…when all of the sudden it jumps us all the way…down to the bottom of the field.…I'm gonna show you how to fix that.…
We'll also learn how to apply a theme to our form.…We'll insert a really cool background,…talk about headers and footers some more,…and we'll insert an image.…We'll put a logo up in the header of our form.…Let's go ahead and get started.…We're going to first open the Customers form.…So, what I want to do is insert the company id field.…It looks like when we created the form,…we forgot to include that particular field.…
Let's go into Design View.…We'll go up to our Tools,…and we're going to select Add Existing Fields.…
