Unanswered: HOLDING SHIFT key to open Access 2000 appl vs 2010?
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.
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).
