    Unanswered: How to find tables in access.

    FYI I'm running access 2007

    I'm opening a pre exisiting project. But when I load it, it auto loads to the menu. I can't see any tables / forms / marcros that are usually displayed on the left hand side. Clearly there is a way to hide them. I just want to view them to make some changes. How do I do this?

    Press and hold down the <Shift> key, and while holding it down, crank up your database. Continue holding down the <Shift> until the database window appears, showing your forms, reports, queries, etc.

    If you want to keep from doing this every time you open the db, goto

    Tools - Startup

    and in the Display Form/Page dropdown select None.
    Hope this helps!

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

    In Access 2007 you simply open the database in question and hit F11 key. This will bring up the Navigation Pane on the left hand side of your screen.
