    Keypress Password (A2k)

    I remember being shown at one point in time how to lock and unlock a database using a keypress sequence. For example if you hold down Ctrl+A you can get the database window instead of the usual holding shift to bypass. Could someone give me step-by-step instructions on how to do that?

    What do you mean by lock/unlock? There are a number of ways to get at the database window, and several ways of preventing people from doing so.

    I'm guessing its a way of preventing people from getting to the database window. Other than using the database password screen and setting up your own form with a password, how can you?

    I should probably ask why you are asking the question, and what your level of experience is with Access before I jump into complicated things. So are you trying to secure a database, get into a secured database, or what? And also what is you comfort level with using Visual Basic for Applications, form design and other such things?
