Hi. Well, I have made my first switchboard in Access and to make it fool proof, I set the properties so the switchboard starts when Access starts and there is no way to update the switchboard. Guess what, I am locked out also. I am not able to change the properties any more. It wont allow me. Anyone knows how to get back the control and make changes to the switchboard? I appreciate your input.

Okay, this can be fixed...in a sneaky sort of way:

Open another database in Access. Right click on the toolbar and choose Customize. Go to the middle tab "Commands", on the left side click on Tools, on the right side scroll down and find Startup... Now drag Startup up to the toolbar just to the right of Help.

Now, when you go into your database, you should see the extra Startup there, use it to correct your settings.

when you are finished, just open up Customize, and drag n drop that extra Startup... back into the dialog box.

Hope this helps,

MBN
