- [Voiceover] Hi, and welcome to Migrating from Access 2003 to Access 2010. I'm David Rivers. Microsoft has incorporated some fairly major changes and improvements in Access 2010, so if you plan on migrating from Access 2003, this course will help to make your transition to Access 2010 as smooth and as seamless as possible. We'll begin with a tour of the new and improved fluent user interface, focusing mainly on the ribbon, the quick access toolbar, and backstage view.

We'll also examine ways to take advantage of keyboard shortcuts in Access 2010. Working in an environment where some people are using Access 2010 while others continue to use older versions of Access can present challenges. We'll cover those challenges and how to overcome them when working in this type of mixed environment. We'll also spend some time with the new layout view to help you design forms and reports more efficiently. With so many topics to cover, let's get started.
