Hi,
I am using Access 2010.
Simple question: How do I change font size for the body of a datasheet??

There is a button at the top of the screen that allows me to change to Fonts but NOT the size - just the style.

In the "Design" form there is no font size either.  (Unlike regular forms)

Am I missing something?

Open the form in Normal View then

Go to the Home Tab -> Text Formatting Group

 Click File, then options.  Look on the left for datasheet.  The font size option is to the right.

 Sorry, I was thinking of the default.  Ed is correct.

You can do this in the Form Load event, as well as set other Datasheet properties.
