Yes. It's true.

This new version of PgAccess , 0.83 comes with a new dumped database,
formdemo.sql that could be used in order to spy how to develop a
application with forms in PgAccess. There are two forms there, one of
them showing how to make a simple rolodex for your phone numbers.

You could see there how to add a new record, how to change one (whoops,
I forgot to show how to delete one, do it yourselves in order to make
some training). Please, get this tiny (4 Kb) file and experiment a bit
before designing your own forms.

Also, please read carefully my notes about form design module at

I made some changes in naming convention style, some new functions and
procedures have been implemented.
Also, there are more detailed explanations.

I have also described there some of the problems that I have encountered
and will need really some opinions from the users.
