It's comforting to know that when you are stuck, help is just a click away. Let's open up this table right here by double-clicking on it. If you're not sure what a button does, hold your cursor over it and a tooltip will appear with the name of the button, and sometimes description text. To get more information come up here to the blue question mark in the right-hand side. Click on it and the Help Center will appear. Click the link closest to what you're looking for. Let's say I wanted to know about Queries. It gives me a list of topics.
Choose one, and it will give you an article with explanations, and a list of steps. At the bottom, you'll also find related articles. There is a Search box at the top of the window. Let's say I'm going to search for "creating a query." And in my search results, let's do "Create queries for a new database." Some topics will redirect you online to Microsoft's Web site. You may wind up in a video library or in the knowledge base. Either way, you must be online to use these resources.
I'm going to close this Help. You can also get help from the Backstage view. Click on the red File tab and then down here to Help. You'll find a Help area, and the top one is that same blue question mark. And when I click on it, I get the same help window. When you've got a question, the first place you should always look are Microsoft's Help files.
