    Adding Field to an Existing Form (Access 2002)

    I have already created a great Form but realize I forgot to add a field from the table to the form. How can I add the field to the existing form without starting over from scratch and creating a new form?

    THANKS!!!

    Open the form in design view.
    Make sure that the field list is displayed (if not, select Edit | Field List).
    Drag the field from the field list to a convenient location in the detail section of the form.
    If necessary, adjust the formatting of the text box and its label.

    Open the form in design view.
    Select View / Field List to open the field list window.
    Scroll down to the field you want to add and drag it onto the form where you want to have it.

    Don't forget to check the tab order when you are through to be sure you are tabbing through the fields in the way you want. If you drag a field onto the form in between other fields then choose: View...Tab Order and drag the fields here into the preferred tab order that you desire.
