Access 2010 reference guide


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.
