The Microsoft Azure platform is now available for production use.
We’ve been using Azure over the past year for web/asp.net hosting and SQL Server solutions. We have been very impressed with its features and capabilties. We believe it will revolutionize how we create and deploy applications, and look forward to providing commercial and custom solutions and services with Azure.
We’re already working on several projects including the merging of the Windows desktop/Microsoft Access/Office with the web. We look forward to sharing more with you in the near future.

I'll be giving several presentations on Microsoft Access application development and our products at the Office DevCon 2009 conference in Brisbane, Australia at the end of the month. Hosted at the University of Queensland, St. Lucia campus, I hope you see you there!

In Microsoft Office 2007 programs (Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) the Quick Access toolbar in the upper left corner offers shortcuts to several commonly-used toolbar buttons or commands.

When moving from earlier versions of Microsoft Office programs (Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook) to Office 2007, the new Ribbon can be very difficult to get used to. One common complaint is that it takes up so much space. However, did you know that the ribbon can be easily collapsed to give you extra vertical space?
