    Unanswered: No Database name on Display

    I am using Windows 7 and Access 2007 on a stand alone PC. On some of my databases, the file name appears on the upper margin (better name?) of the window similar to Word or Excel, but on some databases, the file name doesn’t show at all. I’ve looked all over the place and can’t find a reason for this. Can anyone help?

    The (better name?) you're looking for, I assume, is the Title Bar.

    I understand that displaying the app name went the way of the dodo birds with Version 2007. Are the apps that still show the name old ones that you're now running under 2007 but were created under previous versions? Here's an article from the 'horse's mouth' on the subject:

    The "Horse's Mouth" knew what he was talking about. It worked. Thanks a million.
