I've put a lot of work into a FORM that is referencing a TABLE named "Second Try", which was just a sample table I created just for practice. When I got the FORM working, the only way I could get it to "look at" the table I wanted to use was to rename the sample table, and then name the new table "Second Try". I'd like to rename "Second Try" to something more meaningful, but I'd also like to know how to make an altered copy of my FORM "look at" a completely different TABLE. I saw where someone else had created a FORM before creating a TABLE, and needed to know the same thing I'm asking.

I found it! If I right click on the name of my form, choose edit, and then while in the edit mode go to the toolbar that has a FORM icon, click on it and open the DATA tab, I can choose which table to use my FORM with. So simple, once you know how.

That solved the issue, thank you, but it took ages to find the correct button. So thought I'd describe it... It's two icons to the right of the toggle on and off design mode button (the hand with the finger pushing a button). It has a little spanner on top of a square. The dialog mentions specifying the data source and events for the whole form.
