Access 2010 Modifying Tables
In this lesson, you'll learn how to create and rearrange table fields. You'll also learn how to ensure that your table data is correctly and consistently formatted by setting validation rules, character limits, and data types in your fields. Finally, we will direct you to additional options for doing simple math functions within your tables.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

I hope this has not been answered somewhere before but I could not find it.
Our office is stuck using access 97. For obvious reasons I would like to follow the rest of the world into this century and move to 2010.
Problem is that over the years many people have created many MDBs and not of them them knew what they were doing! It is all a bit messy.
If we start converting databases we will inevitably end up with 2010 front ends linked to 97 tables. I know it is possible to do this and I have done some testing and everything looks okay but does anybody know if this will cause any unexpected side effects? Anything like supported data types across the different versions or anything like that
The business does not have a full time DBA, and has contracted work like that in the past, but I would prefer not to call on such a person for what appears to be simple changes (adding records to tables, etc.).
and I foolishlymentioned that I have some experience with Access, so I have been tasked with all Access problems.
Herein lies the problem: Currently I am working on converting a table and find that the DBA who built these DBs not only hid the nav pane, but apparently has locked the tables for editing as well.
I can get the tables to show with F11 fine, but I need to get around those permissions set on the tables. I am unsure exactly how to go about it with 2010 not having permissions (from what I understand).
In this lesson, you will learn how to open tables, create and edit records, and modify the appearance of your table to make it easier to view and work with.
Having used MANY tables dating back to 2003, etc in Access 2007 with NO problems with the 'Date()' function I am experiencing multiple failures in Access 2010.
When I first opened these Tables in 2010 the error message 'Unknown function 'Date' in validation expression or default value on tblXXXX' was shown and the Default Value of today's date did not work.
I have now had to disable the Deafult Value of Date() in these tables.
Interestingly, NOT all of my tables are affected but the majority alas are.
There were NO changes made to the tables, the original WORKING databases were simply opened in 2010 after an upgrade.
Why do I always seem to get such niggles / issues after upgrades?!
The Table in question has 24670 records and is in the centre of the structure. It records the base data by reference to a date and uses the other tables for the common data.
All other functions of the database work providing reports,
It is as if this one table has been locked in some way.
The database had no problems under Access 2007 and new records could be added to the table in question
I want to make a monthly listing added, deleted and modified records over the past month. We have a database of urban poor community locations (in one table) and various other tables of demographic data collected at those locations (such as eviction information, eviction threat information, relocation site survey information).
We have staff who regularly visit these urban poor communities and will be updating the database throughout each month, such as by adding new records about eviction threats, or modifying existing records based on new information fromcommunity members.
Occasionally, records will be deleted from some tables, for example when a community is evicted (in this case a record will be removed from the urban poor community profiles table and another added to the evictions table).
Call Back Date - Stage - Contract End Date - Days Till Out of Contract. It also has a few other headings but these are the main headings.
