Windows 7: Access 2007/2010 what is the differences

Access 2007/2010 what is the differences

Hi Guys I'm hoping someone out there can clarify my issue.
I have Office 2010 installed on my 64bit win7 Pc; I have a training video for Access 2007
As I am not familiar with either Access 2010 or Access 2007 would it possible to have both versions’ installed on the same Pc?

Basically I want to be able to relate my 2007 training video (Trainsignal) to the correct application or is there NO real difference between them!

If the latter is true what IS the difference between Access 2007/2010?

Thanks in advance

I'm unsure if both can be installed at the same time, but perhaps this helps to summarise the differences:

Access 2010 and 2007 use the same file formats, so that makes it easy to transition from 2007 to 2010. The main differences between the 2 are primarily visual - 2010 has some spiffy 2D and 3D design-time components that aren't there in 2007. So you can make much better looking applications in 2010.

As far as training videos go I think you should have no problem applying what you learned about 2007 to the 2010 version. THe bulk of the changes are visual/cosmetic. There is a "What's New" section on the MS Access 2010 website.

Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?
According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes? So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have...
