(light upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hello I'm Gini Courter, and I am pleased to present Access 2010 Real-World Projects. I'm here to show you how you can take advantage of new features. We'll be using a real-world database to highlight the new features of Office 2010. In this Access 2010 course, we'll look at how easy it is to apply new formats to all the forms and reports in your database with Office themes. We'll look at new ways to conditionally format reports, then I'll show you how to create a pdf or xps of your reports.

And to think strategically about distributing data within your organization. You'll see how to use navigation templates to make your database easy for others to use. And we'll work on re-using objects and forms as application parts. I'm really excited about this new Access 2010 release and I think following these real-world examples we'll make it easier for you to apply these new features to your database projects.
