I've made my database, now I can remember in older access I could make it so when I click the database you would only see the form and not access its self. Is it still possible to do this in access 2010.
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 once used a program, when you click this .mdb file, it opens a main Form interface that user can run programs such as view report etc. That is, all tables, querys reports, other forms are behind the sence (user does not need to know them).
Could anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you for yoru help.
I have a fully operational Visual Basic program that uses MS Office XP and it's related MS Access. Because of security concerns, I recently upgraded to MS Office 2007 and MS Access 2007. I can open MS Access 2007 using the shortcut on the desktop and run any of the database queries. When I try to run the Visual Basic program (called prjPathfinder) and open Access 2007, it says "Error 5: The type initializer for prjPathfinder.Upgrade Support threw an exception". It then shows the first form in prjPathfinder but does not open Access 2007. What am I missing?
I am attempting to create a Macro that will export the COMPLAINT table to an Excel Spreadsheet. However Excel does not open and I am prompted to select the Program I want to use. What am I doing wrong?
Im not sure if this is the right place to put this but I was wondering if you could help me:
Say I have database with forms that display records or people ie name, address, postcode, etc. What I want to do is display a list of Names then from that list I can double, single click and open the record details.
Id call my self and amatuer at access and am probably guessing this is done via vscript or something else, but any help will do.
I'm creating a database full of contacts. I have a contacts table with detailed info on each contact and I also have a company table with details on each company - all companies attached to a contact are in the company table plus a few others. I'd like to be able to pull up a company profile and see all the contacts we have associated with that company displayed in a list.
Hey guys... I created a reaaaally simple wages calculation program some time ago in VB6. When you click the save button, the records are saved to a .txt file stored in the same directoy as the program itself.
However, I'd like to take this a step further and connect this program with some tables setup in an Access database. I know this has something to do with ADO, right? But not quite sure how to set this up..
Would it be possible to get some guidance on this? If you'd like to see the program, let me know.
Can anyone suggest a good program that will handle scheduled emails to people in our Access database? I need to send an email automatically to each of our employees on their birthday. I need the program for much more than that but that is what I am working on at this time.

I am trying to make my form open directly when i open my access file.accdb. When i double click on my .accdb can it be done to open directly and only my form. I found a way to open my form but it opens the access program in the background.
I have been working on a database back and forth and home and at work. Today I saved my database from home and onto my computer at work. The database is not opening here at work. It works fine at home. When I attempt to open it, it tells me Access has encountered a problem and needs to close and it closes.
I tried the Compact and Repair.. Access still shuts down on me. I made a new empted database and tried to import the tables and forms into it.. Access still shuts down on me.
It's getting frustrating because I've been trying to get this working for 3 hours now with no success.
Here's a little problem I have and wondered if anyone knows a way around it.
I currently have many databases that I have created for work and they are quite happy running away doing what they are meant to do on a 2000/NT setup, we will soon be switching to our parent company's network 2003/XP/Citrix which is presenting me with the following problem and we do not have any control over how this is run.
We can no longer create desktop shortcuts to the databases as current, they will place 1 database in the start menu and would like this to be used as the database menu so that all databases are launched from this.
So I am trying to launch access databases from within an access database (Access XP), here's what I have tried so far
Shell - works when I use full MS Access but does not work in Run Time versio n which is what the users will access, shows no error, it just beeps and does nothing.
SendKeys - %fo<FileName>.mdb~ - again works in full access but not in Run Time as RT does not have 'open' in the file menu.
FollowHyperlink - this actually works but I can not get this to open the new database as a full screen window, this requires the user to either run everything maximized (not ideal as some forms are designed to run side by side) or for them to resize the main forms.
Are there any other ways to open a database from within access RT version that will open the access application full screen?
A ex-coworker created a .mde database, but didn't save the .mdb version. The .mde version has been working fine, but today it closed when the end-users tried to open it. It looks like it tried to open the start up form, but it closed. I was able to get into the database and launch the second form, but the start-up is the issue. What could cause the start-up form to keep the database from opening?
The problem: I have my database set to open a form on start-up. On opening that form I put in a command for a message box. When I click OK on the message box it tries to open the form again which leads to the same message box. I need to somehow get to the design view on start-up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Bob
