Hi folks

I figure I'm gunna have to reload office on my PC but I'd just thought I'd ask first if anyone has come across the following problems before.

1. When opening Access the only way to create a new db is with the icon, new is greyed out in the file menu.

2. If I disable the shift key in startup I can still open the db is design mode.

I'm running Off2K dev addition on XP platform with sp3 installed.

I've tried starting with a blank (through the new icon ) and importing existing dbs with same result. All dbs compile / compact and convert to mde OK except I can't disable the shift in both mdb and mde files.

Anyone have any previous funnies like this before I uninstall / reinstall?

TIA
