Modifying a form in Layout view

Layout View makes it easy and intuitive to create and modify your forms. Double-click on the Sales Reps and Customers Form to open it, and drop down this button to change it to Layout View. When you click on the different words in the boxes, they get an orange box around them so that you can modify them. These words are called labels, or unbound controls. The boxes that contain the data are called bound controls, because they're bound, or attached, to the source data in the table.
