Chapter 2. Touring Access Databases > Using a Switchboard

Using a Switchboard

The sample databases that come with Access all employ switchboards. A switchboard is a customized window that makes many features of a specific database available at the click of a button. The Address Book switchboard, for example, offers immediate access to printing mailing labels, merging addresses with a Word document, or locating an address quickly. Often, switchboard options open forms that allow you to view or enter data, reports that allow you to see summaries of data, or queries that allow you to view subsets of data.

Open a Switchboard

Open the database. If the database contains a switchboard, it usually appears automatically when the database is opened.

If necessary, click the Window menu, and then click Main Switchboard to view the switchboard.
