Using forms

In order to use databases, the user must be provided with an interface that allows him or her to view data based on certain criteria. There is a tool for this: forms.

A form is an interface with components for displaying, entering, or selecting data.

Several tools are used to create forms, such as HTML. Several form creation environments (include Access and Windev) exist for each DBMS.
