    Splash Screen (Access 97)

    Is there any way of making Access not display the initial spalsh screen - the one with Access 97 on it?
    Thanks

    The Access Web has a tip on replacing the Access 97 splash screen by one of your own: see here.

    It works for a specific database only. The idea is to place a bitmap with the same file name as the database in the folder where the database is stored. So if you database is named

    MyDatabase.mdb,

    you should place a bitmap

    MyDatabase.bmp

    in the same folder. If you want to simulate suppressing the splash screen, you could create a 1 by 1 pixel bitmap.

    Re: Splash Screen (Access 97)

    If you're trying to make a custom splash screen to show users, there are also other methods that are more effective. I've tried the method Hans mentioned, but sometimes Access open so quickly (especially on launches after the first), that it's often difficult to see the custom splash screen.

    I use a customized Splash screen made from an Access form on all of my apps. It's similar to the Help | About... form you see in many applications.

    Let me know if this is of interest to you and I'll happily post an example.
