Sample Access Form - Its killing Me

Hello all,

I am trying to store product information in one table. The issues – there are easy 29 columns. Can anyone direct me to a sample access form that was designed and laid out for storing product information that has several fields? I am trying to do it but it looks very ugly currently. So if I could get a good visual of some sample forms that stored similar product specific data – that will greatly help
Thank you

Can you provide us with a list of the fields?  Generally, you can group fields that are related together and place them on a tab control.  In some cases, if you have some fields that are redundant, you can normalize the table and use subforms for viewing some of that data.

Microsoft offers a number of free templates. You should be able to find something here:

The tab control is your friend<g>

Group the fields by category.  For example, general info on the first tab (Description, ABC class, etc), weight's and dim's on another, Stock on Hand, On Order, Committed, etc on another, MPS/MRP lead times and fences on another, etc.
