     Example on how a template can drastically accelerate development time for a Database app. With this template, you just have to drop the text controls you want on the form, modify their tag property (see file _Notes.txt) and modify the SQL string that the form uses to get data and voilą. The code will take care of the MoveFirst, MovePrevious, NewRecord, MoveNext, MoveLast, SaveRecord, DeleteRecord, Undo, Requery, EditRecord and CloseForm. It will automatically enable/disable the controls based on what the user is doing and his location in the rescordset. There is even options (in the tag property) to set default values and field validation (alpha or numeric). Since it's the tag property that drives most of the features of the app, the code is very portable/reusable. The template only uses UNBOUND forms (i.e. there is NO Data Control) and is well commented.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
