    Angry Answered: Cannot Open Database

    This is on Access 2000 (yes, I know it's OLD, but it's what the client has) on a Win 7 Professional machine.

    After posting the most recent MS updates the database will not open. The attached error occurs.

    As you can see, it seems to be that the autoexec that should automatically open the form isn't working. I thought it would be simple.

    But when I go to use the Shift Bypass function it doesn't work at all. It's like the computer isn't even sensing that I'm pressing and holding the shift key.

    A copy of the DB works just fine on my personal Win10 machine.

    Any ideas?

    it doesnt need any arguments, just
    openform formname

    try open access, then File, Open, the file (while holding the shift)
