    Switchboard (97 no SR loaded)

    Hi there

    What may be a basic question:

    I have made a database and want to use the switchboard as the interface that the user of the database will see. The switchboard will have a link to a form.

    Can I "publish" this so that the user will only see the switchboard that can open the form?

    How do I do it?

    If you create the switchboard with the Switchboard Manager (Tools/Add-Ins/Switchboard Manager), then in Tools/StartUp list that Switchboard form under Display Form/Page, when the database opens the Switchboard will open. Buttons on it will open objects as you defined in the Switchboard Manager.

    If you're asking how you can get the switchboard to open automatically, you use the Startup item from the Tools menu in Access. One of the items on the Startup dialog allows you to specify the form that will be loaded automatically when you open the database. Put the switchboard form in there and it will load itself when the database is opened.
