A common task after a form is developed is inserting a new row in the form. This short walk-through will show you how to insert a new row in an existing data entry form.
For this exercise our requirement is to insert a Label and TextBox for the middle initial. This row needs to be inserted between the first and last name rows.
Inserting a row is easy. Remember that when you create a row using the Grid designer, you are in effect splitting a row.
