Opening a form from datasheet view

P: n/a
I'm learning Access (2002) as I go, but I can't find how to open a form
from a datasheet view.

I want to be able to view records in the datasheet and click on a link to
open a
form to allow me to update the particular record I was viewing. I've been
experimenting with hyperlinks but fear I may be barking up the wrong tree.

Any help appreciated.

Open the form in design view and in the properties window find
"default view" and select datasheet or better yet, use the form design
wizzard. It works great when setting up a datasheet view form. It
does all the work for you.

Hope that helps
