Comment that is just venting
I like tools that are fast - I could have a whole discussion on what MS took out of 2003 when making 2010 (don't get me started on renaming objects.)

Question
Is there a way to be sitting on a table/query - click a button (doing it in code is OK) and creating a new query that is sitting in design view ready for me to work with?

Problem
In 2003 I could be sitting on a table or query in the database window or an open table or query click a new Query button and I had a query (in design view - ready to work with) sitting in front of me with the source being the table/query I was sitting on.  This speeded up my work.

In 2010 it appears the best I can do when sitting on a table/query is 5 steps instead of 1
     1) Query Wizard
     2) Simple Query Wizard (OK)
     3) Add 1 field
     4) Finished button
     5) Design View

Thanks in advance for any help.

Not quite the same as 2003 but you can still skip other steps by selecting QueryDesign (the icon beside QueryWizard) and double-clicking on your table in the list that comes up.

Additionally, you can just ignore the list of tables that comes up and just drag tables and/or queries from the Navigation Pane to the blank QBE box.
