Creating a Form by Using an AutoForm

Although a form doesn’t have to include all the fields from the underlying table, when it is intended as the primary method of creating new records, it usually does. The quickest way to create a form that includes all the fields from one table is to use the Form button, as you did in the first exercise in this chapter. Another method, which provides more control over the creation of the form, is to use a wizard. In either case you can easily customize the forms created.

In this exercise, you will use a wizard to create a form that displays information about each of the product categories.
