How can I center Access 2007 switchboard opened to full screen?

26 New Member
I am creating a database in Access 2007 for multiple users, some with very limited experience with access. I am using a customized switchboard to make it more user-friendly.

I have the switchboard opening to full screen (covers all of the access window) and it is centered on my laptop but when I open the database on a different computer, different monitor size and resolution, it is not centered.

Is there anyway to have the switchboard centered, no matter the monitor size/resolution when opening to full screen?

You can always make sure that a Form is Centered regardless of a User's Screen Resolution, but the Code is a little complex, and I do not believe that the Form can be Maximized. If you wish to see how this can be done, just let me know.

Have a look at the AutoCentre property of the form.

ADezil, I appreciate the offer on the code but I feel it necessary to have the switchboard opened to full screen for security and to avoid overwhelming users unfamiliar with Access.

NeoPa, The AutoCentre property is set to yes, but the form is not centered.

Thanks for the ideas. Any others will be greatly appreciated.

Regards, JAGster

I am concerned that inexperienced Access users will be confused/intimidated by the Access menus on the ribbon. I am also concerned about securing the database from tampering, inadvertent or otherwise.

I read a little bit of Rabbit's post on Securing a Database in Access and will look into the methods descrbed there for securing the database.

I am very interested in learning how to center forms, regardless of screen resolution. Thanks, JAGster

In the on load event entered the code - DoCmd.Maximize

The form is triggered to open from the Autoexec macro.

So, if it's opening in Full Screen mode, how is it centred or not centred? Surely that is something that's relevant only in restored mode?

I've been clicking around Access 2007 Beta 2 and can't see the custom menu bar designer. Is it in the beta? Maybe I'm blind. The question that comes to mind is: Will custom menu bars be the same height as they were in previous versions or will they be the "ribbon" style that takes up a huge portion of the screen? Also when I use Access 2007 to open an Access 2003 database that has custom menu bars they display as they did in Access...

I've been having a click around Access 2007 this afternoon and have discovered some things that range from annoying to alarming. My Access 2003 menu bars, which I, like many others, use extensively, are now hidden behind an "Add Ins" tab on the Ribbon. Hardly an intuitive place for a user to find them. Unless my memory is failing me, I'm sure that Access 2003 menus displayed normally in the 2007 Beta. The other thing I've discovered...

Just found out that the Microsoft Rich Textbox does not support full text justification, since it's based on Version 1.0 of the RichEdit Window Class, and full text justification is only available in versions 3.0 or later of the class.

This seems incredible, that MS would create a brand new application, and not...

I posted a few days ago that it seems to me that the Access 2007 rich text feature does not support: a) full text justification; b) programmatic manipulation. I was hoping that someone might know one way or the other whether that was true or not, or could point me to an article or help text that would. What I have seen so far online and in Access 2007 help seems to confirm the above. But that (or at least (b)) seems incredible that it...

Hi !! I'm about to develop a new project for a client. Should I go about it in Access 2003 or 2007 ? Purchasing it either for me or for my client is not a major consideration here ... what I'd like to know is the stability, speed & ease of use of both the products. I believe Access 2007 has a new file format too and that it may be slower.

I think I made a major blunder, and now Access 2007 no longer opens.

I didn't notice a problem until I had to use Access 97. Once I re-opened Access 2007, I got the usual message about the Installer (as it tries to repair every time you...
