Launching Access

Launching Access couldn’t be simpler, especially if you’re familiar with other Office products. If you can open one Office product, you can open them all. The following are the two menu options in the Administrator window for launching Access:

  • Click Start in the Windows taskbar —If you use Access often, it will appear on the Start menu, as shown in Figure 2.1.

    Figure 2.1. You can launch Microsoft Access from the Start menu or the All Programs menu.

  • If Access isn’t listed in the Start menu, select All Programs and then select Microsoft Office and then Microsoft Office Access 2003 from the resulting submenus —This is also shown in Figure 2.1. After opening Access, Windows adds it to the Start menu. After you launch Access, Windows displays a small representative button on its taskbar, which is circled in Figure 2.2.
