Newbie to MS Access deleted something essential. HELP!

[MSAccess Filter] HELP! I have been thrust into Access with no understanding of how it works beyond a 10-minute "use this" and "do that" session. Now I think I inadvertently deleted a couple of essential "forms." Can I get them back? Or rebuild them? I know the data must still be in there, but I don't know how to display it. [more inside]

How do I use Access to get information from Access databases and merge them into a series of reports?

Microsoft Access: I might be asked to use Access to get information from a series of online EU databases, merge them and produce a series of reports. I know very little about this, and would have to get up to speec very quickly as the reports are time critical, and if they are not done well, there would be problems for the NGO who have approached me. Could anyone recommend some low cost books or other resources that could help me?

Accessing XP Pro's system restore utility if I can't get Windows to boot in any way?

Is there a way for me to access XP Pro's system restore utility if I can't get Windows to boot in any way? I have access to two computers in one room so making a boot disk of some sort is easily done, but I can't find any method from Google other than those which require a Safe Mode boot, which I can't pull off. More details can be provided if the answer isn't a simple "no."

How do I push Excel data into Access records?

I have a mountain of data to move from dozens of Excel spreadsheets into an Access database. The database is an existing one and sort-of documented. How do I go about doing this? I’m very comfortable with Excel, but not at all with Access---I’ve never used it before. How do I push Excel data into Access records? Are there any web resources I could use? Any books I should buy?
