Automatically open a form when you open the database (Microsoft Access)

This week's tip arose from an email I got from Toby Mutambo who asked "How do i start a form directly when i click an MS ACCESS database". (Thanks for the inspiration, Toby!)

Here's how:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Startup.
  2. In the Display Form/Page box, select a form from your current database.

Next time you open the Microsoft Access database, the form will automatically open. If, for any reason, you want to stop this from happening, simply hold down the [SHIFT] key while opening the database.

Speaking of Microsoft Access ... check out details about the upcoming Mastering Microsoft Access seminar, scheduled for 12 October. Starting with the basics and building your skills to more advanced tasks, this seminar provides you with the database solutions you need to run your business or do your job. And, because everybody who works with lists and databases of any sort (mailing lists, student records, customer lists, medical records) is different, you get my own individual support to help you apply what you learn during the seminar to your own business. What's more, as a weekly tip subscriber you get 10 percent discount (pay just GBP225) - it's now even easier to book as credit and debit card payments are accepted online; see http://www.roem.co.uk/book_access.html

Until next week.
