Moving from Approach to Microsoft Access?

P: n/a
I am trying to make the move from Approach to Microsoft Access and am
having real problems with developing forms? Would someone please
describe the Access concept of developing forms using different tables.

Whenever I try to set up a subform it puts it in a dataview form and I
can't seem to be able to move the fields around. In Approach you can
add and move fields around from all the different db's you have
created. Access uses tables and I seem to have a great deal of
difficulty here

Thanks for any help. I have am just trying to read books to learn.

Create your subform as if it were a totally separate form (well,
because it is). Then open your main form in design view and drag and
drop the subform into it. Set up the LinkChild and LinkMaster fields,
and set the view to Form, not datasheet.

Thanks I think I have got it now. I didn't realize you could develop
the form from the table and then move the form into another form. I
was trying to use the table.

I worked with Approach since its inception and am having to learn some
of the simplest things over again with Access as it is so different.

Maybe by the time I get through this 4 inch book I will understand some
of it.
