    Hiding the Access Window (2003)

    I have placed a shortcut to a frontend mdb in the XP startup folder. Upon opening, if a condition isn't met, the application quits. Is it possible to hide Access so that all this process is carried out in the background so the user doesn't see any onscreen flickering caused by such activity?

    Thank you Hans. I should have used the search utility <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>. This time though I'm aiming to totally hide the Access window while on that thread I still needed to show the startup form on the desktop but I suppose the answer is the same i.e. NOT doing this??
