    In previous versions of Access, there was a "Switchboard" - a simple front end menu system that could display forms etc. In Access 2010, it seems to have gone. So, is there an equally useful alternative? If not, what are my options?

    Cheers

    If you do not want to use the New Navigation Control
    OR create Custom Ribbons, then you need to
    either add it to a Ribbon,
    or Add it to Quick Launch toolbar.
    It is not on a Ribbon.

    Easiest is the quick launch Toolbar.

    Go to add items to quick launch and then choose Items not on Ribbon.
    You will find it there.

    Ah, so easy when someone else shows you. I never even thought about it just not being displayed.

    Many thanks

    In addition to enabling the Switchboard, you might want to look at the new Navigation Control that has been added. It gives you a number of possibilities that you don't have with the Switchboard. See the Access Team Blog for some information about how to use it.
