How to make changes made to an Access table appear in a related form

P: 7

When I make changes in design view to a table in Access 2007, I assume they would show up automatically in a form that was created from that table, but they do not. Is there some easy way to make these changes update in the form?

Thanks in advance.

What kind of changes are you talking about? Adding new fields to the table, for example, will not be reflected in an existing form unless you goto the field list and add them to the form.

Thanks for the reply. The specific change I was trying to make was to change a particular field, one that already exists in the form, to be a combobox rather than a text entry field. Using the Lookup Wizard, I changed the field in the table that links to the form, but those changes don't appear in the form after I save the table. Thanks again!
