(Music playing.) Hi, and welcome to Migrating from Access 2003 to Access 2007! I am David Rivers. Microsoft has incorporated some major changes and improvements in Access 2007. So, if you're considering migrating from Access 2003, this title will help to make your transition to Access 2007 a smooth one. We will begin with the tour of the new and improved user interface, namely the Ribbon, where you'll find easy and logical access to the various features and functions in Access 2007.

Then we will investigate the various options for staying compatible with older versions of Microsoft Access, such as continuing to work with Access 2003 databases in Access 2007 versus converting older databases to Access 2007 databases that use a new format. Now the way you perform many of the common commands in Microsoft Access 2003 may be performed in a different way in Access 2007. So we'll investigate the Office button for common file-related commands, and we will work with the quick access toolbar to help create a more efficient work environment.

We'll discover new ways to view the parts of your database, new fields and options, and we will also work with the mini toolbars for even faster access to related functionality when selecting content in Access 2007. So with so much to cover, let's get started.
