Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the subform control, part of Access 2007: Forms and Reports.
Subform controls allow you to create linked table-like displays of information…that are related to a main topic.…Now, we saw an example of a Subform briefly in the beginning of this course…when we used the Form Wizard to display a list of all of the orders that…included a specific product.…Let's go ahead and duplicate that form manually using the Subform control.…First, I'm going to go up to the Create tab and we'll do a new form in Design View.…Subforms take up a lot of screen real estate and that really makes them a…perfect candidate to pair with a Tab Control.…
So, let's add a Tab Control to our form here.…So, I'll use this tab button here, and I'm going to draw out a Tab Control that…takes up the majority of this form.…And I'll just Ribbondraw a box up there.…So, the first thing we need to do is connect our form to the data source that we want to use.…We're going to be creating a form that takes a look at a specific product…and then within the tabs shows information about the orders that included that product.…
