Access 2010 - first thoughts

We're switching over to Access 2010 now as a development team and - as always with new software - there are some positives and negatives to report.

It is a better development environment than Access 2007 for lots of reasons, not least because there is "Intellisense" now throughout the application (including when building queries) and the old File menu (now called "Backstage") has returned.

Our standard application framework has caused us problems, however, as Access 2010 mysteriously reopens the Switchboard form when the user asks the system to close. We have reported the issue to Microsoft and they are as baffled as us, so it has been a case of finding a workaround rather than a solution. We have done this now and will continue to test.
