Default Opening a Form

  I'm opening a form from the switchboard and I want it to open in datasheet view. I've set it to datasheet view, but everytime it opens from the switchboard, it opens in form view. Is there anyway to work around it so it will open in datasheet view?

Yes. Make sure the DoCmd statement says this:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmMyFormName", acFormDS, etc

This will open it in Datasheet.

It probably says acNormal or acPreview.
