Forms make it easy to view and work with the information in tables and queries. Forms can include fill-in-the-blank fields, check boxes, drop-down lists, buttons, and more.
There are a few different kinds of forms in Access:
Form: A traditional form view. In Layout view, you can edit the form design while also displaying data.
Split form: Creates a split screen that allows you to view information through a Form view and Datasheet view at the same time. You can use the Datasheet view to locate a record and the Form view to edit it.
Multiple items form: Allows you to view multiple records at a time—unlike a regular form where you can only work with one record at a time. It looks much like a datasheet, but allows for more customization.
Other forms types: You may also come across forms that look like datasheets, or Modal Dialog forms that pop out in their own dialog box windows (instead of appearing as tabbed items next to the other database objects in the main database window).
