It’s easy to find out! Give this game a try. Answer each question by selecting one of the answers. The spin wheel that’s on the top right corner of the page helps you score: If you get the question right at the first try, you get to spin the wheel three times. If you get it right the second time you try, you spin the wheel twice. If you get it right at the third time, you can still spin the wheel once. Accumulate the scores on a separate sheet of paper or open up an Excel spreadsheet and input your score and keep track of them. Do you know the basics of Microsoft Access 2007?
The _____ is intended for you to customize it by adding your favorite commands. Next Back No, it's something else. The Ribbon contains commands grouped by their usefulness for common activities, visible when you select the tab for that activity. What else looks likely? No, tabs and groups are part of the Ribbon, and the Ribbon is designed to suit what most people do most often. You can suit yourself, but it's someplace else. Please try again. That's correct! The Quick Access Toolbar enables you to see commands you use often, whatever you're doing. Right-click any command to add it to this toolbar, or right-click a command on the toolbar to remove it. No, that's not correct. But the Getting Started page does have database templates available for you to download. Give the question another try. Tabs and groups. The Ribbon. The Getting Started with Microsoft Office Access page. Back The Quick Access Toolbar

No, that wouldn't help you see them when you need them. What looks likely? Yes indeed. That way you can see what you need to do what you're doing. Commands are listed on menus. Commands you don't use are not shown. Commands are grouped alphabetically Commands are grouped around common activities
Where do you set Access options? Not really. Downloads, Training, Templates, Help — that's what you go to Office Online for. Please try again. No, there's nowhere on that page to set options. What else do you think? It wouldn't be efficient to do it every time, would it? Please try again. You got it! That button is always in view, so you can always make changes to suit you and your use of Access On the Getting Started page.. In the Navigation Pane of each new database. At Microsoft Office Online. Next Back In the menu of the Microsoft Office Button.
You can't use the Lookup Wizard to alter an existing value list. Sorry. You have to use Design view to alter a value list. Correct. You use Design view to alter a value list. False Next Back True
Which of the following is the correct syntax for a value list? Not correct. You use double quotes, but a different separator. Can you see the right one? Sorry. You use double quotes and a different separator. Can you spot the right one? Excellent. Place each option between double quotes and separate each option with a semicolon. "Option 1":"Option 2":"Option 3" 'Option 1','Option 2','Option 3' Next Back "Option 1";"Option 2";"Option 3"
When you use a template to create a table, you must set data types for the fields in the new table. Incorrect. The templates have the data types set when you open them. You can change them if necessary, but you don't need to set them. Good. You can change the data types if you need to, but they're set for you. False Next Back True
Formatting you apply using Form Layout Tools is saved as soon as you see it, so be careful. It's the other way around. You can apply and preview all the formatting you like.

What's the fastest way to create a database for your contacts? That could take a while. Try a different answer, please. You'll find that Access has a lot of advantages over that method. What looks likely? Not so fast. You'll have to enter all the fields yourself. Give it another go. Exactly. You'll find a Contacts template on the Getting Started page, in the Business category or the Personal category. Buy an address book. Click Blank Database. Search for one on the Internet. Next Back Download a Contacts database template.
How do you base a new report on an existing table? Not an option. What looks likely? You won't find it there. But you're looking in the right place, pretty much. What's close? Access is simpler than that. Try another answer, please. That's it. Access gives the new report controls that match the table fields, and the same name as the table. On the Create tab, in the Reports group, click New Table Save the table as a report. Copy the table data and paste it into the report.
