    Unanswered: Paradox -> Access - creating default form display

    I have a simple name/address file
    that I setup in Borland Paradox many years ago...
    In fact, the printed list in the kitchen dates back to 1998.

    One very nice aspect of browsing the Paradox db,
    is that you can see all the rows....
    and scroll vertically like a spreadsheet, or Access,
    and then, land on the record that interests you,
    hit F7 -
    and you are now in "form display" mode of the record -
    (without ever having to create a form).

    I've imported the Paradox db into Access 2007,
    and I can manually roam around and change things,
    but would really like that old Paradox functionality -
    display all rows....
    scroll up/down,
    then display a record in form mode -

    Even if I create a Form,
    how do I get from the full screen scrolling of rows -
    stop on record - then display my form ?

    Just trying to learn a little around the Access 2007 world.

    then why did you post this under Paradox, instead of Access?
