    Can you recommend excellent websites where excellent accdb samples are available for downloading for the learning purpose?
    In particular, I'm interested in those containing macros and VB codes.
    Thanks.

    The Access 2007 welcome screen contains a number of good templates of databases containing macros and modules. Also, you can find a number of other sites that have sample or template databases with a web search.

    Hi WendellB,
    Thanks for your valuable remark.
    The sample templates included in Access are lacking sophistication and complexity.

    The templates on Microsoft's website are usually a bit more polished than the ones that come with Access. See Access 2007 - Templates

    Hans,
    The templates from your suggested source are indeed more sophisticated. Do most professional Access developers produce the similar look and feel? Previously I imagined Access applications would start with a main menu.

    Some people use the Switchboard form offered by Access, or a customized version of it. Others prefer to create their own start form from which users can select what to do. There's no "golden standard".
