    Form's are not in tables. Form's are used to interact with data/records that are stored on a table.

    Perhaps if you could explain a bit more about what you are trying to do?

    I'm not sure I understand, but you can make a copy of a form and then change its record source property to a different table.

    You can, but why?

    Certainly could be a sign of a normalization problem, but there could be a form that I've put a lot of work into and need it for a different but similar table. Why not?
