    Access 2007 and multiple windows (2007 SP1)

    I have made the jump from Access 2003 to Access 2007 and, in the main, it's been fairly painless. But there is one bit I cannot work out how to fix - that of multiple windows. By changing over to tabbed windows, MS seem to have done away with us having more than one window (e.g. 2 different queries) visible at the same time. The only way I can find around it is to open multipe copies of Access - and then I get all the ribbon bar overheads etc.

    Has anyone found a way around this?

    regards

    There are two solutions that I am aware of for the situation you describe.

    1) Open your windows as dialogs (pop-up property set to true).
    2) Click the Microsoft button in the upper-left of the Access application. Then, select Access Options. In the form that opens, select Current Database. In the list on the right, six items down from the top there is a setting for Overlapping Windows. This setting provides the same functionality as Access 2003 and earlier.
