Reading an item in a 2007 custom Forms tool

Your options for reading an item in a 2007 custom Forms tool depend on whether the data view lists items in a table, or one at a time.

If the data view lists items in a table, do one of the following to read items:

  • Double-click an item to open it.

  • View the item in the preview area. You can widen or narrow the preview area by dragging the window splitter. Press F8 or SHIFT+F8 to display the next or previous item in the preview area.

If the data view lists items one at a time, click the Home tab, click Arrange, and then click the item you want to read.

Some forms in custom tools contain "form views". A form view enables you to display the form with a different set of fields in a different layout. To change a form view, on the View menu, point to Change Form View, and click a form view name.
