Working in Layout View

Up to this point you’ve been building a form in Design view to add and edit records in the tblEmployees table. You’ve seen how to start with a blank form and add fields to the grid, position the controls into a two-column layout, and then align the controls both horizontally and vertically. In this section, you’ll follow the same procedure to build an employees form, except this time you’ll use the new Layout view in Access 2007. By performing the same steps in Layout view, you will learn how the new Layout view can significantly reduce the amount of time spent aligning and positioning controls. You’ll also be able to see live data in the tblEmployees table while working with the controls in Layout view.
