Controlling Object Spacing

Access provides excellent tools for spacing the objects on a form an equal distance from one another. Notice in Figure 8 that the ID, Company, Address, and City text boxes aren’t equally spaced vertically from one another. To make the vertical distance between selected objects equal, you choose Equal Vertical from the Size/Space drop-down in the Arrange tab of the Ribbon. In Figure 9, you can see the result of using this command on the selected objects.

You can make the horizontal distance between objects equal by choosing Equal Horizontal from the Size/Space drop-down. Other related commands on the same drop-down are Increase Vertical (or Decrease) and Increase Horizontal (or Decrease). These commands maintain the relationships between objects while proportionally increasing or decreasing the distances between them.

Modifying Object Tab Order

Access bases the tab order for the objects on a form on the order in which you add the objects to the form. However, this order isn’t necessarily appropriate for the user. You might need to modify the tab order of the objects on a form yourself. To do so, you select Tab Order from the Tools group on the Design tab of the Ribbon. The Tab Order dialog box, shown in Figure 10, appears. This dialog box offers two options. First, you can click the Auto Order button to tell Access to set the tab order based on each object’s location in a section on the form. Second, if you want to customize the order of the objects, you click and drag the gray buttons to the left of the object names listed under the Custom Order heading to specify the objects’ tab order.
