Default Access

I am using access to create a dictionary of terms, using two fields: “term”
and “definition.” The data type for the term is text and memo for definition
(so I can use an unlimited number of characters).

I created a query to search the terms and pull up the definition; however,
it is not very “visually friendly” when the term comes up and it is hard to
read a longer definition as the text continues on one line.

For that reason, I wanted to create the same search function; however,
instead of the term coming up in the table, have it come up in a form (since
those can be presented much nicer). Is their any easy way to do this so I do
not have to set it up each time (as this will be used by many other people
who have no clue how to use access).

Thanks for your help and advice.

Could you explain that in a little more detail? I am new at using access and really don't understand.

Thanks again for your help!
