Default startup options

hi, is there an option to hide ms acess back screen? what I mean is to hide the gray background and menu bar and title bar, like if the form was a stand alone program? is that posible? also if you i could hide the quick ms access 2003 splash screen that appears when opening an access file.

BUt i don't just want it on my pc but on every pc that i open my file. That means that the setup must be coded in the file not in the program.

mjuliao,

It's possible to hide the back screen. Using the hwnd properties, you can set the size of the back screen. Are your forms all the same size? When you say open your file, do you mean the .mdb file?

Let me know.

Do you have any reports?

Basically, when you open your form, you are sizing access. The code would go in a module, that executes when you open your form. You then have to position your form where you want it on the screen, and this can be a problem if you have different resolutions on the different pc's that you are running on.

Send me your email, and I'll send you a small database that utilizes the code and you can go from there.
