Set new standards
You can change Access's default form.
To set up a custom template,
- Create your template form by specifying all the properties you want to maintain from form to form.
- Then, save the form using any name.
- Next, select Tools>Options from the menu bar and select the Forms/Reports tab.
- Enter your template's name in the Form Template box to replace the Access default (Normal) and click OK.
In Access 2007-10, click the Office button in the upper left corner and the click Access Options.
The design options are located under Object Designers: Forms/Reports.
The same thing can be done with Reports.
(The settings are saved in the Access workgroup information file, not in a particular data base)
