New field on a form?

I have a table that I added a new field to, but can't figure out how to add it to the associated form. Is there a tutorial anywhere that might help? Thanks - Bill

When I get stuck like this, I figure it out experimentally.

Start a new database, and create the filed you are interested in.
Start a form for that database and use the wizard.
Look at the form to see if that is what you want.
Edit the form.
In the editor, select the wrench.
In that menu select "Select Item"
That will tell you what is there and what you need to put into your database.

The problem I believe is fields can be used different ways, so it is difficult to have a good chart that will tell you which filed will do what. I've asked for that and never got a response so I use the method above.

Just a long time user, and not very good at it either.

Hope this helps.
