New coverage also includes: customizable Ribbon and Themes; the revamped Macro Designer; Quick Start Fields; IntelliSense support in Expression Builder; Application Parts and Navigation Forms; conditional formatting and data bars in reports; and new web database publishing techniques. As with all In Depth books, Access 2010 In Depth presents comprehensive coverage, breakthrough techniques, exclusive shortcuts, quick access to information, troubleshooting help for tough problems, and real-world examples with nothing glossed over or left out. Step-by-step instructions with icons guide readers through essential tasks such as designing tables, entering data, importing external data, designing and executing queries, and designing data entry forms and printed reports. Additional chapters on advanced form and report design emphasize data entry efficiency and presentation clarity.
