Thanks, but Premium MSDN subscription ;):D It's just that I don't have a need for the 'new' stuff (and hardcore ribbon hater :p), and cba to install it just to test it out for one feature...

Do you know if it is possible to convert the new format (assuming Access 2010 has a 'new' format too, like the other office programs), into something compatible with 2000/2003? Because if it is way easier and more intuitive to design stuff like forms/reports and switchboards in Access 2010, I might consider installing it just for that (provided it can be installed side-by-side with the old... hmm)
No, unfortuantely you can't save it in a compatibility mode if it uses any of the new features as they aren't backwards compatible.
But those things you talk about which make designing reports and switchboard easier, are those 'new' things like new objects and controls and stuff which require the new format? Or are they just 'new' UI goodies which makes designing easier (but don't require the new format)? I don't need anything other than the basic label, button and lookup objects - but the UI to design a switchboard or report is still a pain in the behind in 2000/2003. So, if 2007+ is much better in that regards I might use it simply to design the stuff and then safe to 2000/2003 format and use it in Access 2000/2003.

And serious going off topic I guess...

O.P. RE: SQL/Database Help
I'm not entirely sure how they work, but you can't save them in an earlier format to use in Access 2000/2003 (they don't even work in 2007!)  The Navigational Control thing is totally new for 2010, it replaces switchboards in a much more dynamic and accessible manner.

And ribbon rules! :P
