I just inherited ownership of Access 2010 IT Pro documentation for the Office 2010 Resource Kit. And by documentation, I mean one topic–Changes in Access 2010. Historically, the Office Resource Kit has contained very little content about Access. On the other hand, there is quite a bit of Access content for end users on Office.com and for developers on MSDN. We also Access Services content for IT Pros on TechNet.
Even with these sources of content, I suspect that IT Pros need to know more about Access 2010. Why do I say that? Because our Changes in Access 2010 topic is one of our top 15 most popular Office Resource Kit topics, and the key word “Access 2010” is one of our most popular Office-related searches on TechNet. And any time a link named “Access 2010” appears on our TechNet pages, it always attracts a lot of clicks, So I know IT Pros are coming to TechNet for Access 2010. The question is: what are you looking for, and are you finding what you need?
To get you started, I’ve tracked down just about every Access 2010 resource I can find on Office.com, MSDN, and TechNet. I also included a few community resources like the Access forum and Access on Facebook. So tell me IT Pros: is there something else you need? Leave a comment, please!
