This is probably a silly and easy question. I have not used ms Access since version 97, but now I'm doing a side project in Access 2003. I now have hit a sort of stumble - I cannot get my TOOLS back!
OK, I built a database with a main form, which I want to be visible at startup for the user(s). I wanted only this form visible, with no Tools or edit windows or anything. So, I went to MACRO and STARTUP, and unchecked the appropriate things and set my form "ClientForm" to be shown at startup.
It works fine... when I open the file, only my ClientForm is there.
And this is the problem! Now I want to continue editing and building other tools, and I can't get around my startup macro!
In the old 97 database, you held the SHIFT key, double-clicked the .mdb file, and it'd open up with all the normal tools. Now this is not working. Is something wrong? How do I open my db with Tools and everything enabled?
Thanks for any help, sorry if it's a "newbie" question.
