    Startup Settings (A97)

    I'm trying to change the App icon and title in the Tools...Startup dialog but when I press OK and then go back to Tools...Startup, the settings have reverted to the previous values.

    Anyone experienced this before?

    Do you get any errors when you compact the database? I've had Access get "forgetful" about the startup settings when the database is corrupt.

    I tried repairing and compacting but that wasn't it - it turns out that if you are not the owner of the database then you cannot change the startup settings, although it seems to accept the changes at the time and you only discover later that they have been ignored.

    I solved the problem by logging in under the owner profile and then made the changes.
