Example text

Because a toolbar exists for literally every occasion, you find toolbar descriptions scattered throughout the book. Don’t worry if you can’t remember what all the buttons do — neither can I. If you’re button-challenged, just pause the mouse pointer over a button. After a moment, the button gets tired of that heavy pointer and, hoping that you’ll go away, displays a screen tip — a small box with some text that describes the purpose of the button. If you wait a decent amount of time (like two seconds) and no quick help pops up, it has probably been turned off.

If the database isn’t listed, it’s probably in some other folder. Skip to the sidebar in Chapter 6 for help with tracking down the database in your hard drive or network. If you see an ominous-looking message asking whether you want to convert or merely open your file, it means that the database file you want to use came from an older version of Access. Access 2003 wants to convert your existing files to the current database file format — and you probably want it to do that, too. Follow the on-screen instructions for turning the database into a cool, new Access 2003 table, and everything should turn out just fine.

Kudos upon kudos go to my project editor, Susan “Spink” Pink for her diligent efforts to make my ramblings follow commonly accepted semantic guidelines. As an extra added bonus, she even laughs at my jokes. Sometimes. Equally significant thanks go to technical editor Allen Wyatt for verifying that I didn’t make most of this stuff up. More gratitude than I can express here goes to Senior Acquisitions Editor Steve Hayes and to the King of Acquisitions (or whatever his real title is), Andy Cummings.
