Default Creating forms from queries

I am trying to use a query to create a form but when I use the form wizard
and select justified as my form type it says that access is unable to create
one for me. I was wondering if I could just start the form design from a
query.

Thanks

Default Creating forms from queries

What is the EXACT message that you receive? There is nothing that inherently
prevents the Access Form Wizard from creating a Justified Form from a query,
but the Wizard will choke if there is an especially large number of fields in
the query or table. I've never seen the limit written or experimented to find
out exactly how many fields is too many, but I know that there can be too
many. How many fields are in the query?

This doesn't mean that you can't base a form on your query, you just have to
design the form yourself.

You can create a new form without using the wizard at all; set its
Recordsource property to the query; and then add controls to the form using
the Field List toolbox.
