This afternoon, I patted myself on the back for completing an Access Database I'll be using at work. Bruce and I are in the IT department at a local casino and have been looking for a way to track our work. I created this database for just that. We can key in projects or service requests and print them out later. As a final touch, I thought it would be nice to have the database open by showing the main form only. I was wondering if it would allow me to hide all other open windows at startup. I just wanted to see the main form. I right-clicked the main window and selected "Startup" from the pop-up menu. On that page, I chose to view my main form on startup. I also unchecked all boxes related to things viewed at program startup. I saved, closed, and reopened the database. The main form opened as I had hoped it would, but the other window (listing tables, forms, reports, etc.) was open as well. That's not really what I wanted. My only option now is to make more changes to my startup procedures....but wait a minute! I can't get there now! My menus are missing. I can't even edit any of my forms or reports because the options simply aren't there. I realize, of course, that I mistakenly removed the checkboxes from those items for the "Startup" procedures for the program. Now, however, I'm wondering how I can get my menus back. I'm trying to get any kind of access to this database now. I've almost completely locked myself out of the darn thing. How silly.
This database was created with Microsoft Access XP (2002).
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
I hope my enclosed photo will demonstrate my problem.
