RE: The differences between forms and reports

Hi Shihwen

In Access, Forms created for user interaction with the database.

They can be used to enter data into tables as well as displaying information from tables or queries.

Reports are mainly created to be printed on paper, although they can also be used to display information on the screen

Hope this helps



Access tip:

Prefixed Autonumbering

When using Date Type = Autonumber as a primary key, clients may require autonumbering to be prefixed with a letter.

For example, P001, where P is the prefixed letter

Step 1. Create Field Name
Step 2. Set Data Type to Autonumber
Step 3. Within Field Property General tabsheet,
enter Format property as [backslash]P000
