    There is no automatic way to do this. Your options are:

    - Cut and paste the labels from the detail section to the form header section, then drag the controls into the proper position for a tabular form.
    - Use the Wizard or AutoForm to create a new tabular form from scratch.
    - If you can live with a datasheet form (I usually avoid datasheet forms), change the Default View property of the form to Datasheet. This is the nearest you can get without redesigning the form.

    Hans,

    I have done the first proposal but I still have only one record on the form and I need to use the record selector to go to the next one.

    Change the Default View property from Single Form to Continuous Forms.
