Microsoft Access  Database – My Additonal Comments

The ability to now click and apply a pre-defined theme to a form or report is great and has been vastly improved replacing the template to forms and report approach (though still supported).

You can even design your own look and feel by changing all the attributes which include fonts, colours, borders and background styles, then capture this as a new theme which is available in the same area on ribbon bar.

The file format which you are prompted to save as is known as ‘.thmx’. Just remember the location for your themes which defaults to the template folder in Microsoft Access.
