Hi Dan,

Yes - with two caveats:

If the dataform control (definition of the record set behind the form)
is _not_ based on a Table object (which is equivalent to a query of
SELECT * FROM TABLE) then a field added to the table definition
subsequent to creating the form will not appear in the Add Field list.

If the dataform control is populated from a QueryDefinition vs a Table
of "SELECT * FROM TABLE" and depending on the data engine used then it
can require a refresh to the connection before the added field names
will display in the Add Field list.
