    In the database view select Extra->Start...->Advanced and check out "use Access special keys"

    The actual naming might be different as i don't have access to an English version.

    Apel,
    It is unchecked.
    What happens is this...
    1. User opens MS Access "Shell"
    2. User presses Alt-F11 (Opens VBEditor window)
    3. User goes back to shell -
    4. Chooses File - Open
    5. Opens a .mdb that "Use Access Special Keys" is unchecked as well as
    all other options in startup
    6. Goes back to VBEditor window and THERES THE CODE!

    Sure, I could make it a .mde, but the DB is being used and developed at the same time.

    I need to keep it a .mdb for the moment. Bypass key is no issue. Access to DB window is no issue, just the Alt-F11 is the issue.

    Any suggestions?
