    Shift key bypass


    I'm not sure what you mean but i guess your saying that the shift key is dissabled. so when you hold shift down on start up the application still runs autoexec macro and goes through access startup settings?

    if so then someone has set the AllowBypassKey property

    there are a few ways around this.

    1 - create a new autoexec macro in a new data base. set the macro to show tool bar menus and database window. Export autoexec macro to your database.

    2 - create autoexec as above and in the first line of the macro put



    should reset the shift key bypass and let you back in.

    if it doesn't then the changeproperty or allowbypasskey have been set up with different names.

    hope this helps.
