    Unanswered: bypass key (shift)

    simple Q...if a user logs in to a database, then uses the shift key to skip a menu/form that might show up, and go right to the database window, will this bypass EVERY module/function that could have been fired that would have entered any new data into the database?

    From the Access 2002 Help:

    "If you used the Startup dialog box (Tools menu) or created an AutoExec macro or an Open event procedure to specify what happens when you open a Microsoft Access application, you can bypass those settings to regain full access to your Access file."

    I think there are VBA/functions/etc. that will start anyway, curious myself to know the alternatives here.

    Using the shift key when opening Access

    Yes, this bypasses all modules/functions and macros. This will not fire when you open it with the shift key.
