Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Formatting , part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
In the last movie, we looked at how we can add references to our data tables…with the field list and how the arrange tab in the Form design will help you…organize elements on the page.…Now let's turn our attention to the Format tab.…The Format tab has many of common formatting options that you might recognize…from other programs, such as Word or Excel.…Right now, I have got the Employee Directory form open that we're working with earlier.…I am going to change its View to Design View by going to the View menu and Design.…On the ribbon up here, I am going to change the Format tab.…We will take a look at this.…One the left side, I have got a Selection section, in the drop-down menu where I…can select different object on my form.…
Now I can select from any object here, if I select Address for an example, here…I will choose Address Box.…If I want to choose one of the labels, I can choose say Label2 here, I am not…sure exactly which one label 2 is though, apparently it's the phone number one.…So I could choose objects here from this menu.…
