Just as we add headers to documents and workbooks, we are able to adda header to a form or report on Access 2019. The header area is locatedat the top of the form or report, where the main heading isdisplayed:

  1. Open StudentsFrm in Designview so that you can apply or edit the header. If the form’sheader is not visible in Design view,either right-click with your mouse at the top of the form and chooseForm Header/Footer from the drop-downlist or place the mouse pointer in between the form’s header text andpage’s header text. A double arrow will appear. Hold your mouse down anddrag downward to create a space for the form’s header:
