New Access Database template
I have already blogged about new database template in Access, but original post on team blog was gone (thanks to my reader motioning this!). Jeff Conrad has it in his Access 2007 FAQ. The idea is: if you want to have new database created with predefined settings – you can make a Blank.accdb database and put it in Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\Access.
And one more link to Office online article: Create a custom blank template.
Same applies to Access 2010.
