I know you’ve seen all the templates that load with Access 2007. After all, you see them each time you launch the Access program.
However, I’m always amazed at the number of people who don’t take advantage of the wealth of templates Microsoft uploads to their website. And, they’re all free.
So, before you start creating something, do yourself a favor and do a quick search to see if anyone else has already created it. Chances are good that what you need has already been created and you can save yourself a ton of time by just downloading someone else’s creation.
