    Startup and Maximise? (2000)

    Already back again!

    How do I start access up, as I now have told it not to display the database window, how do i get back selectively?

    Also when the first form loads, it is not maximised, how do I get this to happen?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    1) Unless you have disabled the special Access keys in Tools | Startup..., you should be able to display the database window by pressing F11.
    If you have disabled the special Access keys, try holding down the Shift key while opening the database. This will make Access ignore the startup options.

    2) You can put the following code in the On Activate event of the startup form:

    Private Sub Form_Activate()
    DoCmd.Maximize
    End Sub

    If you want to return to non-maximized when you leave this form, add this code:

    Private Sub Form_Deactivate()
    DoCmd.Restore
    End Sub

    Thanks,

    i had not disabled the shortcuts so it worked a treat. Already for my 6:30am start tomorrow to get it all ready for the users for 9am!

    Installled new SBS2003 server over weeked as well as replacing the terminal server for the new db, life is a joy. and to cap it all off I have manual labour to do at the weekend (erecting a new fence).

    Once again thanks you.........and good night
