It's appropriate right here, Chris. Access is enough different from other Office applications and even from VB to make this the best place for Access-specific questions and answers.
Unfortunately, your play time is over. There is *no* macro recorder in Access. You have to learn to do it the hard way. There are a few wizards for things like command buttons, but for the most part you write it yourself. On the other hand, we never have discussions about the relative merits of selection versus range. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Would you like to discuss ADO versus DAO, though? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
One sort of entry point for you would be to create a macro (in the Access sense of the word), which is a container for a list of actions you can take. They roughly equate to selections from menus, although writing good macros is just about as hard as writing good code and a lot more frustrating. Once you have a macro saved, you can use File-->Save As to save the macro as a module, which will convert it into what you're accustomed to calling a "macro". Unfortunately, Access is still using older code in its wizards and converters, so it isn't great code by any means. For example, here's an AutoKeys routine converted from the macro:
On Error GoTo AutoKeys__B_Err
DoCmd.Echo True, ""
Not pretty, and the converter has replaced the caret in the macro name to an underscore since the caret is not a legal character in code (it is legal in an AutoKeys macro name where it represents the ctrl key).
Your best bet is to get a good book on Access if you want to learn Access, because it doesn't share much in the way of objects with any other Office app. Even the forms and controls are different, since Access doesn't use the Microsoft forms that the rest of Office uses, and the properties and methods of the forms and controls are different. XP seems to look a bit more like the rest of Office in some respects, but Access is still going its own way.
