Is It possible to set Access Startup Options using VBA?

3,653 Recognized Expert Moderator Specialist
I am using MS Access 2007.

I have a database that I do all my editing and programming in and have certain Access options (under the Current Database tab) set one way during the editing. However, when I compile the database into the .accde file, I reopen the database and set certain options, such as the initial display form and navigation pane options. I keep these enabled during programming for ease of use, but disable them whem compiled to prevent others from possibly using them (or at least making it more difficult).

Is it possible to use VBA to set these options to automate this process after the compile? I already have code re-mapping all my linked tables and modifying/deleting unused Switchboard items.

Does anyone have any experience with this?Thanks!

Thank you ADezii. My aim was not as limited as simply answering this thread (although that was certainly the starting point). I saw this was something that could be more generally helpful (to me as well as others) with just a little more meat on the bones. I expect this module to be available for my use in all future projects.

I'm so glad I found this again. It made creating just such a module again so much easier :-D

A hijack question has now been moved to a new thread called Set Application Title using VBA.

Please do not post new questions in existing threads.

Hello. Re: Access 2002-SP3 I have some options turned off under "Tools/Startup" area on my workstation. When I deploy my app to 5 users (who will all have a full blown version of Access 2002 on their PC's) I would like to disable some startup options programatically at runtime via VBA. I am looking for VBA code to turn off these options at application startup and turn them back on for the user when they shutdown my app:

We have a question but we're in doubt if it's even possible or not. The question is as follows: Is it possible to access a form using a string literal, and if so yes? We want to use something like this (don't mind the syntax as it obviously doesn't work): Form("Form1") frm = ("Form1")GetForm("Form1");

This is for security reasons - I need to know if the original database has been copied without authorisation. Due to network issues I cannot use...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
