I have tried to make a login screen, I have also searched for information and tried some of the examples but, I just can't get one to work. Is there someone or somewhere where I can get information on how to build one step by step in simple easy instructions....(access 2003).
Also, how do you get access to open all the windows, tables, queries etc in full screen mode. I have expaneded them and shut it down and then reopened it but they still want to open out of full screen mode.
Thanks, everyone has been a great help in creating my first Access program.
Is there a way to hide the application title bar (including the min, max and close buttons) as well as the windows taskbar when Access is running? I have seen this done before where the form fills the entire screen - ie no controls or frames are visible.
Hey. My database would like, to make itself feel complete, a rele snazzy opening form. I have flash 8 and I've created a 1024x768 movie with some simple animation on it. I've managed to add the movie to the database as a ActiveX flash object and the animations play. The problem is making the object larger! It's staying very small no matter how I change the properties of the control. Any help would be much appreciated. For the sake of my databases mental health... of course. :cool:
To attach the movie I did so: http://www.databasedev.co.uk/flash_movie.html
Apologies if I am covering old ground here but unfortunately I cannot find a suitable solution after searching the forum.
Basically my switchboard on Open includes DoCmd.Maximize so that the switchboard does indeed open on full screen. However, say I then leave my database open and work on a different application on my PC then when I click on my database on the taskbar then the form is not longer full screen.
So what I am basically asking is, is there a way of 'locking' it to appear full screen even if I flick between applications on my PC?
Is there a place I can insert a snippet of code to have all the forms come up full screen. Some users think it is annoying that they dont always come up maximized. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I just imported all of my objects (tables, forms, etc.) into a brand new database file and all of my forms are now full screen instead of the size I set them to in design. What caused this? I can't get them back to their normal size.
I am using Access 2007 but imported files into 2003 .mdb file.

I would like to ask here for advice on MS Access 2000 application. When a user logs in, he should be able to use the Access 'Query' screen in read-only mode. In other words, he should be able to generate queries by selecting tables and columns, or using the wizard, but the results of those queries may never have any influence on the data in the database. So: SELECT queries only. Users should be allowed to execute those queries, but are not allowed to access the tables, forms, or any other items directly. Is there a way to achieve this?
I am trying to build a Multi Search Screen and just do not know how to achieve this. what I want the application to do is:
1) I Created a main form for data entry called 'Orderfrm' 2) The Orderfrm Field EmpNo - I created a Search Button. 3) Users to enter the Employee No or Surname or FirstName (multisearch) and hit the search button to search for the relevant employee. 4) I would like then to open a 'SearchFrm' with the details of the employee. 5) If it is more than one employee - the system to list them all 6) users will select the correct employee details and finally the system to autofill the details in 'OrderFrm'
I'm looking to take a screen dump of the current Access window, and save it to disk, as part of the error handling for my application. Does anybody have any suggested starting points? I've been Googling around for a while, but haven't really turned up anything concrete.
This (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=240653) was as close as I really got (sending the print screen keystroke), however I still need a way to save this data to the disk.
Is there anyway to bring up the on screen keypad or on screen keyboard from Access when running Windows 8 on the desktop? It would really be useful if someone was on a tablet wanting to input data in a text box if could automatically invoke the onscreen keyboard. By default when running applications on the desktop in Windows 8, one has to manually bring it up. I would like to include a touch option so every time wanted to enter data, they would not have to manually touch display keyboard option. A number pad like in excel for iPad would be even better. If text field would bring up keyboard, if number field, it would bring up number pad.

I have a MS Access database which has a web browser control incorporated within . I also have a get screen capture program for "excel" which works magnificent. I would like to incorporate these 2 functions into The Access . I would like to use my web browser control located in the access example to zoom into the picture of a house . Then capture that image and save it into access in the best usable format possible ...
Currently I have MS Access DB which has some Oracle database table reference using database link concept. I have entered DSN Name,user id and password which it asks when I try to run some queries which will fetch data from oralce DB linked tables.If some wants to use my MS Access DB, they need to have DSN and everytime they run queries related to Oracle database table reference, it will ask for DSN,user id and password. For this I need to share the user id and password credentials to everyone who wishes to use my MS Access DB which I don't want to. Is there a way to avoid the login window whenever some one wants to use my MS Access DB without asking for oracle user id and password credentials everytime? My ultimate aim would be encrypt password for others.
