    Unanswered: default text size, and place for prefilled tables

    Hi,
    First, how do i change the default size of text, when i drag text boxes from the field list to the form it ends up at 8.pt i need 12.pt. Iv'e tryed changing the size when i type into the caption, in table creation but when i go to drag it into the form its still 8.pt. It;s a pain coz then iv'e got to chaange the size of the text manually???
    Also is there any good places to get info for tables allready in access i.e - states, ethnicity e.t.c
    ANy help would be great
    Thanks,
    Brownie

    You can change the defaults for controls. In form design view, bring up the properties dialog, then click for instance the text control icon on the toolbox. In the properties dialog, alter the properties you like.

    The second question I don't understand. Where are those tables coming from?

    If you're looking for racial and ethnic data, try the US Census site at:

    http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet...m=DEC&_lang=en


    Go to the Quick Tables and select the report you want. You might have to fish around a little cause there's tons of data. Then go to the PRint/Download menu item near the top of the page and select Excel and check off the box that downloads the column titles too. Good luck.

    No thats what i'm talking about

    Thanks alot jberes, thats a great site.
    It seems there shoud be a site with premade lists you can place into a table so you can pre populate a combo i.e:

    Race: Black, hispanic, white e.t.c

    Income: 0-5000, 5001-1000, e.t.c

    States: Alaska, alabama,....

    I know it doesn't take THAT long but every bit helps.
    Thanks again
