Microsoft Office Access 2007 brings you a new look and new features designed to help you get your work done more easily than ever. You'll see differences right away, starting with the Getting Started with Microsoft Office Access page where you can open a blank or existing database, download a pre-built database template, and check out the offerings on Microsoft Office Online.
In an open database, the Navigation Pane shows you a list of objects in the database, and the Ribbon, part of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, displays commands organized on tabs, in logical groups. Want to create a new database object? Just click the Create tab on the Ribbon to see the commands you need to create tables, forms, reports, and more. And the Ribbon isn't the only new place you'll find commands. You can also customize the Quick Access Toolbar so that the commands you use most are always at your fingertips, and click the new Microsoft Office Button to find the commands for setting program options and more.
Tip Access 2010 features many improvements over Access 2007.
