    Question Unanswered: HOLDING SHIFT key to open Access 2000 appl 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!
    Jennifer

    About that, noting changed fundamentally in Access 2010. In every version of Access (97 to 2010), holding down the Shift key while opening a database prevents the execution of the AutoExec macro (when it exists) as well as the opening of a startup form (when one is defined).
    Have a nice day!
