Object spacing tools broken in Access 2010
I have recently installed and started using access 2010. So far I like it a great deal better than 2007, however I encountered a pretty nasty problem. When designing my forms, I rely heavily on the Size/Space tools to organize and align my objects. The spacing tools however seem to be broken, particularly the Horizontal once. In access 2007, I could select a number of controls, hit Equal Horizontal, and have the horizontal distance between the objects the same. Then I would use Increase/Decrease Horizontal to further tweak it. In Access 2010, none of this seems to work. Can anybody using Access 2010 confirm that this is indeed a bug, and if so what are some potential workarounds

Each Access database consists of multiple objects that let you interact with data.

In this lesson, you will learn how to to open and close databases, as well as how to open, close, and save objects.


Access 2010 - Images on Forms
I'm running Access 2010. I'd like to put a different image on each page of a form or report. Is there a way to do this with OLE objects or links to my hard drive without coding? Everything I read on the internet tells me that I can't in the 2010 version of Access. Any help would be very welcome.

Make Form Appear Automatically After Opening Database
when I open up my MS Access 2010 database, all of the Access Objects are along the left hand side and nothing is on the big screen in the centre (until you click on of the Access objects). I would like the objects to appear along the side, but the Form to be automatically on the screen when you open up the database, so that the people using this form can easily enter the data without having to look through all of the objects along the left. How can I do this?


Introduction to DAO, ADO, ADOX, and SQL
Microsoft Access ships with a language named Visual Basic For Applications, or VBA. This allows you to complement MS Access with code that can perform complex operations. This language is used throughout the Microsoft Visual Office family of applications, including Microsoft Excel, Work, PowerPoint, Visio, etc. This language is also used by applications published by companies other than Microsoft. An example is Autodesk that publishes AutoCAD. To customize the VBA language for our database environment, Microsoft Access includes a library called Microsoft Access Object Library.
Topics Microsoft Access Object Library and VBA, Microsoft Data Access Objects, Database Creation With DAO, The Structured Query Language, Introduction to SQL Operators, Unary Operators, Binary Operators, Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects, ADOX Fundamentals, The Data Source of an Application and The Connection to a Database.


Access 2010: Databases comparison with AccdbMerge
Compare MS Access Databases, Find Differences & Merge Objects: Comparing multiple objects from two separate MS Access databases is not only difficult, but also quite a tedious task, as one needs to first check each data set in databases, and then make required changes to DB objects. If you’re working with multiple versions of Access database, you may be looking for a tool that can help you identify the differences between all major objects of database, including tables, forms, reports, queries and so on. Instead of tallying each dataset and DB objects, you could use AccdbMerge to instantly view the differences, and import & export selected objects from both database versions to easily merge the required sections. AccdbMerge supports both widely used Access database formats, including MDB and ACCDB, allowing you to read all the elements of database without having to install any additional tools.


Access Web Databases: 2010 vs. 2013
Access web databases are dead. But there’s no cause for alarm. Now we have Access web “apps”. With the introduction of Access 2013, Microsoft has made substantial changes to its vision of how to put Access database applications on the web. The differences between Access 2010 web databases and Access 2013 web apps are major, and you should consider them carefully before embarking on an Access web project.


User permissions - access 2010
I'm relatively new to Access but I have setup a database so far without too much trouble, however now I want to set user permissions so that only certain users can access certain objects from a main switchboard.

How would be the best way? Passwords? User-level security? How do I action either in 2010?

I have been researching this for sometime now, but all I seem to find is that the 2010 addition prevents User-level security and how to change from previous versions

The Navigation Window
XP/2010

I'm new to 2010 and mostly I find it intuitive but am stumped about what I am seeing in the Navigation window. Left clicking on "All Access Objects" shows the following checked:

Object Type
All Access Objects

Right Clicking shows the following selections:

Category - Object Type
Sort By - Type
View By - List

The problem is I can't see the tables! I only see the queries and reports. The only way I can see the tables is by selecting "Tables and Related Views," but I don't want this view with all the related objects under each table


Access 2000 coded forms to Access 2010 web database
Developed an application in A2K need to move it to an Access 2010 web database and in turn publish it to Microsoft Sharepoint live 365.

The Forms contain hundreds of Controls w/thousands of lines of Event code.

Tried import into *.accdb then Save & Publish. In 2010 keep getting: "Forms are Coded" error. Have already tried removing the Events code from the Forms and then pasting it back. NO Go.

Have also tried to import the *.accdb objects into a Blank Web Dbase. Still no go.

Talked w/Microsoft. Told the tech at Microsoft it took a few years to develop the original in A2K and I could probably do it again in half as many years BUT don't have years, have days.

Don't think I'm the only one that has encountered this.

The question: How do You get of the Objects and Code from earlier versions of Access into an Access 2010 Web Dbase?
