Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the role of forms, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- The next Access object that we're going to…start working with is forms.…Form objects serve several important…roles in the database.…First, forms will create the main user interface…for your database and allow you to set up…navigation systems and group tasks…in ways that make sense for your organization.…Forms provide a blank canvas…for you to populate with lots of objects…in order to manipulate the data…and functionality of the database.…You'll do this by adding references…to table fields and records and other control objects…such as buttons that are attached to macros…or Visual Basic routines in order to provide interactivity…and trigger pre-scripted events.…
You can also create a unique experience…for the users of your database…by adding images and using font and color schemes…that are pleasing to work with…and that support your organization's brand.…Finally, you can add additional interactive controls…to your data such as toggle buttons…and dropdown combo boxes and charts.…Primarily, forms will be used to interact with your data.…
The course also shows you how to build queries and action queries, create and design forms, use macros, integrate Access with the rest of the Office 2016 suite, and maintain your databases over time.
