To Open a Database from Access
Earlier in this chapter you created your database on a USB fl ash drive using the fi le name, JSP Recruiters.
There are two ways to open the fi le containing your database. If the fi le you created appears in the Recent
Documents list, you could click it to open the fi le. If not, you can use the More button to open the fi le. The
following steps use the More button to open the JSP Recruiters database from the USB fl ash drive.

Why do I see the Access icon and
name on the Windows taskbar?
When you open an Access
database, an Access program
button is displayed on the taskbar.
If the contents of a button cannot
fi t in the allotted button space, an
ellipsis appears. If you point to a
program button, its entire
contents appear in a ScreenTip,
which in this case would be the
program name followed by the
fi le name.
