In this eighth part to a thirteen-part series on HTML database forms, you will learn what a tabular form is, how to lay it out, and what functions you should use with it. Join us as we continue our journey.
A tabular form is a form where you can see several rows of data. The rows are confined in a rectangular area. This rectangular area has scroll bars you can use to see more of the rows. The data in the rows are the data in the recordset. This is our example.
Fig.2. Tabular Form
A form has an associated recordset from where the row data are retrieved. In this case, the recordset is what you are seeing in the tabular form. This gives us the advantages that I outlined in part one of the series. With traditional database programming, you cannot see the recordset on a form.
