Hi Ben,

Tools > Startup.
In the drop-down at top right of the dialog, pick the form to load. Next time you launch the DB, you're set.

expanded window

I was just looking how to do this too. So I have set it to open my form but it opens it with the window slightly minimised. How do I get it to open in full view??

Many Thanks

Hi Jon,

You will need some code -- one line.

Open the form in Design view. Right-click and select the Properties.
On the Events tab, find the blank On Open line and double-click so you see Event Procedure. Now click the Builder (...) button at the end of the line to go to the code window.

In the blank line between Private Sub... and End Sub, paste this:
Code:
DoCmd.Maximize
Close and save the form.
