Afternoon Eperts,

I've been tasked with learning the newly acquired Access 2010.  I've used previous version of Access but this new 2010 looks totally revamped!  Does anyone know of a good 2010 access reference guide that outlines creating a simple report/ form that pulls from 1 table and has a single filter on like an employee????

I'm accesssing it through a sharepoint connection.  Would that make the code not accessible??

I think so.  Sharepoint does not support VBA code.

Well, that makes sense since Sharepoint does not run VBA code at this time.
