    Browsing for file (2002)

    This is my entry for the most basic question of the day. I recently got a new computer, and updated to Windows XP and Access 2002. When I want to open a db that is not on my recently used list, this version displays the items in My Document. This is a long way from where my databases are stored. How do I get the search window to open a little closer to where I want to go? I've done this before, but I can't seem to find the trick again. <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    Select Tools | Options... (you must have a database - any database - open for this)
    Activate the General tab.
    Enter the path you want to use in the Default Database Directory box.
    Click OK.

    I wish all my problems could be solved so quickly. Thanks Hans. Oh, you don't happen to know how to thread a sewing machine do you? <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Wasn't there a DoCmd method for that? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
