    Command Button for Table (Office 2000)

    Hello,
    I just noticed that if I use the Command Button Wizard on a form, the choices do not include to open a particular table or any table for that matter. I have a couple of tables and I would like to be able to go to the table using a Command Button on the startup form. How would I do that?

    Thanks
    Louise

    Don't open tables like that. Instead, open a form or report that is bound to the table so that you have control over what happens after that. That protects the table itself but allows you to enter data or see the contents. Tables themselves are pretty wide open, so they generally shouldn't be exposed. Use a form to control and validate the user interaction with the table.
