Hello. I am using Microsoft Access 2003, and have a question about creating a switchboard.

Everything I have read tell me that once a switchboard is created, it will automaticaly launch when you start Access and open your program. However, I cannot get it to start up, without going into the form menu, and selecting it there.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

Did you go to Tools--->Startup and indicate the switchboard form name in the Display Form/Page box?

If you're using anything but 2007, go to Tools - Startup, then choose the form you want to open on the database starting. With 2007, click on the Office Button - Access Options - Current Database, then you'll get the choice of which form to display on Open.

Thank you both. I was able to successfully get my switchboard to come up. I searched again after your replies, and I still didnt find this information in the help files. Thank you again!!!
