Exploring a database
Navigation Pane
The Navigation pane, which replaces the Database window of some older versions of Access,
is located on the left side of the Access 2010 interface when a database is open.
The Navigation pane allows you to view and manage
the database’s objects, and is customizable.
A database’s objects include such items as tables, queries, forms, and reports.
As you did with the Ribbon, you can toggle the Navigation pane. Although the result is the
same, the procedure is slightly dif erent. You’ll toggle and examine the Navigation pane in
more detail after you’ve opened a database that contains some actual data.
