Create a split form
A split form is a new feature in Microsoft Office Access 2007 that gives you two views of your data at the same time — a Form view and a Datasheet view. The two views are connected to the same data source and are synchronized with each other at all times. Selecting a field in one part of the form selects the same field in the other part of the form. You can add, edit, or delete data from either part (provided the record source is updateable and you have not configured the form to prevent these actions).
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

I have been browsing this forum very often lately and I have learn a lot. could I create a split form from it? If I can,
The form will be used to enter data or paste multiple rows of data into the split form.
I’m new to both the Navigation Forms & Split Forms in Access 2010, but I can see that there is a lot to be gained from their use. What I could do with is some advice as to whether a split form can run in a navigation form? From my experience when I linked a split form into a navigation form it rendered as a single data entry form, however it still continued to work properly as a split form when called from the navigation pane.
I am redesigning forms to have a more compact and organized look. Currently, the split form view is used on all the main forms. Instead of the Datasheet portion of the split form in a separate pane, I'd like to put it on a tab in the pages control I've added to the form.
There are only four options for the split form orientation property from the property sheet. I waswondering if I could use a little coding to put the split form orientation on a tab in the form itself?

Access 2010 offer many options to setup Form and its control in way you want. Many a times while creating form, we need to split a form control vertically or horizontally. You can for instance split a form control to let user enter his middle or surname.
When you work with forms in Access 2007, a split form view can be very useful. You simultaneously get two views of the form that are connected to the same data source. This demo shows you how to create a split form view, where you can use the datasheet part of the form to quickly locate a record and the form portion to view or change the record. You will also learn how to enhance and customize a split form view to suit your needs.
I am attempting to design a split form where I would like to filter the split form to show only show those records of a particular member chosen by a combo control on the parent form
Learn how to create forms. Forms provide a window into your data, make your database look polished and professional, and help you enter data more accurately.
After completing this course you will be able to:
1)Use the Form tool to create a simple form.
2)Use the Split Form tool to create a split form — a form that lets you 3)work with single records and large amounts of data.
4)Use the Form Wizard to create a form.
5)Use Layout view to change a form.
6)Use Design view to change a form.
Since the split forms can't be used on a navigation form I am trying to manually build a split form and the appearance is great, but I cannot find how to link the subform to the main form for record navigation
I have a split form, with several unbound text boxes, which I would normally use as a filter by form type function. the query has criteria bound to these text boxes.
My problem is that I cannot seem to get the mouse to focus on the unbound text boxes on this split form. when I click in the unbound filter by form text box, the focus immediately moves to the first text box that is bound to data on the form.
Then I will try recreating my split form in a different way. if it is a problem, If perhaps a split form cannot have any unbound data entry controls on it, then I could create a form with the search criteria on, and keep the forms separate. If I was to do this, though I would like to 'dock' this form at the top of the window, and then have the split form 'dock' underneath, as if there was an application level window splitter control. Another option might be to put the filter by form text boxes in the ribbon, and I have added some stuff here, but I am unsure how I might refer to the control in a query criteria.
