I am used to using buttons or the switchboard for access operations which seemed clunky. Now they have a navigation form for reports. I am looking for something different that controls everything. I have seen an example for one at TheUAIC.com that seems fairly simple and has some nice features I like:
It has everything for navigation controlled by one form.
It can be used to open/execute everything like – Reports, Forms, Queries, Macros, Code etc.
Once a selection has been made it has an area that explains in greater detail of what the Report, Form, Query, Macro, Code etc. is about.
Documentation can be easily accessed for the selection.
Due dates can be also viewed and edited quickly for the selection.

My question is has anybody used this before or know or other navigation systems for Access that may similar or better?

Thanks for any assistance.

Here are my responses from other boards:

Only one possible option listed above that requires me programming.
