I have made a data base where I have made a form with nothing on it but a nice "welcome".
I would like to user to open the database file and the "Welcome" form to appear for about three seconds only, then, the menu form opens where the user can navagate from there.
I have an idea that I will have to use a "autoexec" macro which I'm not sure how to use or work. So far from the "start up" (tools / startup) I can make the form appear on start up but of course I only want it there for 3 sec then dissapear then open menu. I can put a button on the form but I don't want to.
In the mean time I will be investaging the macro idea.
I have worked out how to make the query where it opens up the Welcome form when a user opens the file. I named it "Autoexec" so that the first thing the data base does is looks at that query first and opens it up.
Now for the final problem. To make the "Welcome form" appear for about 3 secs, disapear and open the form menu. Mmmm just thinking I might need to make another macro that will open the Menu form.
what you could have done to prevent any coding is design the form but as an image and save it as a .bmp file with the same name as you db and in the same directory and this will replace the access splash screen with your .bmp image
