    I'm not sure, from the description you've given, exactly how you got this Switchboard onto another computer. I suspect the problem is that you've imported the Switchboard Form into your database. The problem is that this comprises only half of the Switchboard! In order for the Switchboard to work, you also have to import a table named Switchboard Items! These two items make up a complete Switchboard, and without them Access can't "find" the Switchboard.

    As I explained, you have to have both the table and the form or you don't have a switchboard!
    Hope this helps!

    Thank you myle and missinglinq
    I usually dont use a switchboard for that reason on any of my DB's. But I will look and make sure the table and the form is copied to the other computer before I split the Mdb and make it a Mde. Could splitting and converting have something to do with it?
    Thank you
