This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Create two simple forms:
- A form called frmOwnerSimple to view or edit owner details;
- A form called frmPetSimple to view or edit pet details.
Create a new form in design view called frmMenu to resemble the example shown below:
Use properties to turn off the unnecessary features such as Record Selectors
Write code in the Open event of the form so that it appears restored rather than maximised when it is opened.
Attach code to each of the buttons to:
- Hide the menu form (use the Visible property of the form to do this);
- Open the relevant form (depending on the button clicked).
Attach code to the Close event of each of the input forms, so that when either form is closed, the main menu becomes visible again.
Check that the system works, then save and close all the forms.
