What is a Tabular Form?

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

The above tabular form is what we are going to create. We shall have to change many of the JavaScript functions we have written for the Single-Row Form. We shall delete the functions that are not appropriate. We shall carry out these changes in order to have code that is relevant to the Tabular form.

The recordset

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.
