    Application open evernt? (2003 sp2)

    Is there an event associated with the opening of an application prior to looking for a startup form? I would like to initiate a procedure when the app opens and open the startup form at the end of the procedure. Is this possible?
    Thanks

    I assume that you mean "Associated with the opening of a database". You can start Access without opening a database.

    You can create a macro named AutoExec. It will be executed automatically when the database is opened. You can open the "startup" form as the last action in the macro.

    Note: you'll have to set the Startup Form property in Tools | Startup to (None), since it is now opened from the AutoExec macro.
