The Ribbon does it all.
The Ribbon at the top of every screen shows you all the commands for working with a database. On the Create tab, for example, you'll find the commands to create new tables and other database objects. You'll use the External Data tab when you want to import or export data.
Each Ribbon tab contains its own groups, and each group contains the commands for a particular activity, such as sort and filter, hide and unhide, copy and paste. You've probably guessed that the Ribbon is new for Access 2007. Good guess.
