    Database window won't 'stick' as maximized (Access 2002 SP3)

    When I open a database file by clicking on the filename or clicking on a shortcut to the filename, the main Access window opens as maximized, but the database window itself consistently opens as a smaller window within the main window. This means I have to click to maximize the database window itself every time I open it; in other words, the maximized database window won't stick between sessions. It's only one extra click, but it's annoying. Is there some way to get it to open maximized? Thanks for any available help.

    Create a new macro, with just one action: Maximize. Save this macro and name it AutoExec. Next time you open the database, the database window will be maximized.

    Note: in the 'production' version of databases, I always hide the database window.
