I made a table in access and now I am trying to make a form based on that. Even though I have used the maximum amount of space on the form, there is not nearly enough room for all of my fields. Can you please help me? Maybe with a software update? Surely it cannot be the case that you can have endless fields in the table, but not the associated form?


Thank you
