    Hi

    welcome to the forum

    Is this your app or does it belong to the person that wrote it? If it belongs to the person that wrote it then you want to check your legal position here.

    Is the access application an mde (most easily identified by the file extension) or an mdb? If it is an mdb do you have to log in to use the application?

    And I hate to speculate like this, but chances are if you don't know how to access the code, you probably shouldn't be messing around with it. You could end up accidentally changing one letter in the code and it could screw up the whole database.

    I have to agree with Nick on this! Anyone who doesn't even know how to access the code editor has no business in there!
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!

    But I need to learn how to cause it's my job to do so now ...

    Caveat: ENTER AT OWN RISK!!!!

    Select desired form.
    Select View->Code
    Say, "Oh Shit!!!" and post questions on dbforums->Microsoft Access
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    Before you do ANYTHING, make several backup copies of your db!
    Hope this helps!
