    Opening Datbase

    When you start Access (2000)you are presented with a menu to create a new database (blank or with wizard) or open a file. All databases and any files that have ever been opened appear in the menu. I would like to see only the files I want on this menu and be able to delete the ones which I am not likely to ever use. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a way. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    These are part of the Most Recently Used (MRU) list. They are stored in the registry in:
    HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0AccessSettings
    in the MRU# and MRUFlags# values (where # is some number).

    Just be careful. If something gets mucked up in the registry, it can be more a headache than some misbehaving MRU list. [img]/w3timages/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
