WELCOME TO THE Microsoft Access 2010 24-Hour Trainer book, and thank you for taking the time to read this material. Microsoft Access 2010 is a very exciting release with a ton of new features that both complement the existing features and provide completely new functionality. And, although Access 2010 has many new features, most of the preexisting features are still there. If you've used Access before, you should be right at home in this latest version. Truly, Microsoft Access 2010 is the most impressive and feature-rich release in Access history.

As such, we have worked tirelessly to try to cover all of the major features to help you dig deeper into the various components in which you are interested. We have tried our best to describe what they do within Access and explain how you can use them. It is our sincerest hope that after reading this book you will have a general understanding of what each part of the Access 2010 product does, how to use each within an Access database application, and how to create a fully functioning Access database application from scratch.


This book is designed to be a step-by-step guide to learning how to use each of the major Microsoft Access 2010 components. The content in this book is geared toward beginner- to intermediate-level users who want to learn how to develop database applications using Microsoft Access 2010, but do not know (or know very little) about Access 2010.
