Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying the form through its properties, part of Access 2007: Forms and Reports.

I'll click the…View Down button, and then Design View.…Now I can open the Property Sheet by going to the Design tab and clicking the…Property Sheet button, way over here on the right side.…
