    Startup menu (Win XP Access 2007)

    I am struggling my way through the Access 2007 changes, and, among the things I can't fine is the Startup menu. (Tools/Startup in 2003) Any help?

    Could you help with the Compact and Repair command, and the Northwind sample database? The Compact and Repair command is available for the Rapid Access toolbar, but I should be able to execute it without having it on that toolbar. I am looking for these things in a Spanish language version of Access, and it is difficult. Thanks.

    1) Office button > Manage > Compact and Repair Database.

    2) I don't have Office 2007, I don't know if there is a ribbon item or whatever for the Northwind database. I've read, however, that Nancy Davolio has been sent packing... <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    First Clippit - then Nancy - who's next?
    What did she do? Photocopy parts of herself at the office Christmas Party?

    If you open a new db, under the local templates there is a Northwind 2007.accdb offered. That will open the new version of Northwind, sans Nancy and with a whole new interface.
