Default Downloading new styles in Access 2002

Hi, this is my first post so please be nice!

I need some nicer styles for Access 2002 when you make a new form or report in the wizard. Most of the ones included my Microsoft aren't too nice, so i need some nice looking new ones.

Ta.

Are you referring to the background picture on the forms? I do not like to use those anyway. If anything you can add your own background .jpg image to the form. This will slow down your form so I don't use them.
If you are referring to different ways to set-up your labels, textboxes, etc. It is easier to create one yourself and stick with the same one accross your entire application.

Open your form in "Design View" and click on an item(textbox, label) and click on the properties button on the toolbar. There under format you can change your objects to your liking. Just make sure to stick to one format or you will drive users crazy.

Are you new to Access?

Through the form wizard you can select different predefine styles, and i need a nice looking one.

i know how to change the objects format and stuff, but i want one that will set it up through the wizard.

These are for Access 2000 but they'll work with 2002.
