    Unanswered: Hide the Access Application window, display User Forms (was "All I want...")

    So I've been trying to figure out how to minimize the entire MS Access main screen so that the only thing that shows on the users desktop is my switchboard and forms.

    Granted, I want it so that holding "Shift" will bypass this so I can get in and make adjustments or changes.

    BUT I think first, I need to figure out the answer to my question of the OLE Issue error that I'm getting.

    I think I have seen this done. Try googling around the subject, but include "subclassing" in your search terms. If you turn nothing up let us know and I will see if I can dig it up....

    I found two different ones searching for what you gave me a lead on pootle, I appreciate it.

    If anyone else needs it, the links are:

    http://www.access-programmers.co.uk/...p/t-27054.html

    http://www.oehus.dk/Access/FAQIndex.htm

    Though I haven't tested either of these yet, well, I did try the links but not the code. Will repost if it doesn't work!

    Thanks again, Pootle!
