Lesson 5 Creating a data entry style data access page
Objective Use the Page Wizard to create a data entry style page.
Data entry style pages are useful when you have a need to just enter data. They are not for examining large amounts of records because you will have to move record by record. The data entry style page is just like creating a form that’s in Single Form view.
As with other Access objects, wizards are provided to help you create DAPs. In this lesson you will use the Data Access Page Wizard to help you create the simplest of the DAPs, a data entry page. When using the wizard you will be asked to specify:
  1. The record source
  2. The fields that you want to display or update
  3. Which sort order to use
If you choose to group field(s), then the page will no longer be able to be used for inputting data. The wizard warns you about this.
In addition to the items just listed, you can also specify that you would like to use a Theme for your page. Similar to formatting forms and reports, the themes you can choose from are those that are used in Microsoft Front Page.
In the next lesson, you will learn how to use the Page Wizard to create a grouped page.
