    Unanswered: Can Access automatically open to a form when the database is opened?

    When you open a database (.mdb) it opens up to the main screen where you can select "Tables", "Forms", "Queries" , "Reports", etc.

    I designed a form that links to all my other forms and all my other reports.

    Can I have access automatically open to this form when my database is opened? (this would hide the other, potentially confusing, information such as queries, etc)

    you can make a macro called Autoexec in which you minimize the Database Window then OpenForm yourMainForm

    Note hte macro must be called Autoexec

    hammbakka,

    It's much simpler than that ... Just set the Startup option of the DB ... Goto: Tools->Startup and select the form to run upon entry.
