- Scrolling through the records on the form…using the navigation buttons on the bottom…is not really a great experience.…We can see this on our employee form…if we try and find a specific employee.…Let's go ahead and open up that form…by double clicking on it…and let's try and find Phyllis Lucero.…I can see the name is listed right here,…so if I go ahead and start navigating through my records,…I can check each one of these until I find her.…And there she is on number eight.…So it's a good thing she wasn't number 108,…or we'd be clicking for quite a while.…We can dramatically improve this functionality…by creating a combo box that will jump us…to the record that we want.…
In order to start the process,…we need to go into design view.…So I'll come up here on the home tab…and I'll change my view into design view there.…Then, I'm going to add in a new combo box into my form.…We can find the combo box in the controls section…of the design tab, and it's this object right here…with the little graphic of the downward pointing arrow…
