Understanding datasheet view
Posted on 2004-11-22
I'm a little confused by the Datasheet view for forms.
When I enter the design view of a datasheet form, the layout looks like a regular single record columnar design. But when I open the form (by double clicking on it), I get more what I expected....a Microsoft Excel like view of the data. All the records at once, row by row.
However, when I add the form to the Switchboard and say Open in Edit Mode, the form opens more like the columnar view, similar to what I saw in design view.
How can I get a form that's more similar to Excel. I like tubular, but I don't need the formatting/column headings, etc. I'd prefer a simple clean line by line, like Excel, or like I saw in the preview of the datasheet view.
