Switchboard Headings

P: n/a
Hi:

I know there are mixed views about the switchboard function, but i would like to consider
using it anyway. One snag I have found is that you create a Main Switchboard, and put some
headings in it, then insert some switching lines some of which go to lower level boards.
The lower level boards pu\ick up the same headings as the main board! I would like to have
headings such as:
Main menu
Client Menu
Associates Menu
Report Menu
etc.

How do you change headings in lower level switchboards?

Regards

In Switchboard Design View use the FIELDS drop-down and select Name. As the
switchboard goes from menu to sub-menu, that name is shown. I use this at
the top of the switchboard so that I can see where I am (I have 2 databases
merged - almost identical switchboards/sub-menus and I need to know where I
am!!)
