Creating forms in Access can make entering data more convenient. Learn how to create and modify Access forms here.
Access makes it easy to create a form from any table in your database. Any form you create from a table will let you view the data that's already in that table and add new data. Once you've created a form, you can also modify it by adding additional fields and design controls such as combo boxes.
If you created a form from a table whose records are linked to another table, your form probably includes a subform. A subform is a datasheet form that displays linked records in a table-like format. For instance, the subform included in the Customers form we just created displays linked customer orders.
We probably don't need to include this subform because we just want to use the Customers form to enter and review contact information. If you find that you don't need a subform, you can easily delete it. Simply click it and press the Delete key.
However, subforms aren't always useless. Depending on the content and source of your form, you might find that the subform contains useful information, as in the example below. In our Orders form, the subform contains the name, quantity, and price of each item contained in that order, which is all useful information.
