Lesson 1. What's New in Access 2002 > Introducing Task Panes

Introducing Task Panes

One of the biggest changes to the Access environment (and all the Microsoft Office XP suite applications such as Word 2002, Excel 2002 and PowerPoint 2002) is the introduction of the Office task pane. The task pane is a special pane that appears on the right side of the Access application window when you use certain Access features (features that were formerly controlled using dialog boxes).

For example, when you choose to start a new database, the New File task pane appears (see Figure 1.2). This task pane makes it easy for you to start a new blank database or create a database using the different database templates provided by Access. Creating a new database in Access is covered in Lesson 3, "Creating a New Database."
