    Where's My Switchboard? (2007)

    It's there, 'cause it shows up when I click the Switchboard Manager. The "Items" shows up in the Navigation pane.

    But where's the Main Switchboard?

    Regards,

    I don't know the answer, but I don't understand the question either.

    So can you explain more fully why you think you have a problem..what you see, don't see etc.
    Regards
    John

    All the items in 2007 are listed on a "shutter bar" I believe it's called -- a Navigation Pane./ All tables forms, etc. are listed there.

    The *items* for the switchboard are there -- that's a table. But the Switchboard itself isn't.

    But if I click the Switchboard Manager, it shows up.

    ??

    Re: Where's My Switchboard? (2007)

    The switchboard consists of two database objects:
    - A table named Switchboard Items. This table contains the information about the title of the switchboard pages, and information about the caption of the items the user can select and their actions.
    - A form named Switchboard. This form has a VBA code module that reads the information stored in the Switchboard Items table and uses it to display the correct captions and to perform the desired actions.

    The "Main Switchboard" is just the default title of the first switchboard page - the page shown initially when you open the Switchboard form. You can change this title in the Switchboard Manager to anything you like. This title, like all other information about the switchboard, is stored in the Switchboard Items table, in this case in the ItemText field.

    The Switchboard Manager doesn't look at the form, it only looks at the Switchboard Items table.
    If the form has disappeared, you must have deleted it, intentionally or by accident.
    You can create a new switchboard as follows:
    - Delete or rename the Switchboard Items table.
    - Start the Switchboard Manager. It will note that there is no switchboard any more and offer to create a new one for you.
