Access comes with several predefined formats that it allows you to apply to an entire form. This tutorial explains applying a format to a form with AutoFormat.
1. Click the Form Select button (in the upper left corner next to the ruler), or press Ctrl+R to format the entire form. Then, select a control to format only that object.
2. Click Format, and select AutoFormat.
3. Select the desired format from the list. A preview of the format will appear in the right pane. You can click Options to omit applying the font, color, and/or border style to your form.
4. Click OK to apply the selected format.
Note: You cannot undo the initial application of an AutoFormat.
