    Unanswered: changed autoexec to open another form

    Originally the switchboard would load when opening the database. I deleted the switchboard and have a new form I created open instead of the switchboard.
    I created an autoexec macro to have my new form load when the db is opened.
    My new form does load successfuly when the db is opened, however, before that there's a message I have to close.
    The message is:
    "The form name 'Switchboard' is mispelled or refers to a form that doesn't exist."

    How do I get rid off this message?
    Thanks.

    bsarman,
    Check in Tools/Startup and see if you have a reference to the Switchboard still hanging around in there. I'm certain since your form does load that your macro doesn't have any instance of the switchboard in it.
