    Question Unanswered: Holding SHIFT key to open appl in ACCESS 2000 vs 2010

    Hello All,

    I wrote a small application (DB) for a friend many years ago and they would like me to migrate it to 2010 and make changes. I was able to convert it to 2010, but I don't know how to open it in edit mode?

    Like I said, it has been YEARS since i looked at it and I know when I want to edit it, i hold the SHIFT key to get into the area where I can edit the report and code, etc. But in 2010, the SHIFT key does nothing. How do I open the application in Edit mode in 2010?

    Also, how do I find that place where you set the up to call a Form upon open? I am only slightly familiar with 2010 so there is a learning curve here to make these modifications.

    Thanks for any help!

    Don't know why your Shift key is not working! But Open Access and then Browse and select your db, then select open exclusive while holding down the Shift key and see what happens.Also, have you tried holding the Shift key in other db's and did it work? if it did, then you will have to re-enable the bypass Shift Key process.
