REQ: Question about access. Please read inside. Thanks.

P: n/a
Is there a way to have Microsoft Access XP automatically display all
table views, etc., in a maximized screen when Access is started? It is
extremely time consuming to have to maximize the viewing windows
inside Access every single time I started it.

Thanks in Advance.

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAppMaximize in one of your forms' Open event should
do the trick.

Thanks, Keith, but how about those databases that contain nothing but
flat tables? Is there a way to get them to maximize automatically, or
better yet, is there a system's level way to force maximizing
everything, always?

Thanks.

Off the top of my head, you could open a hiden form from the startup
options and run the command from there. Worth a try :-)

Yes, but it requires code to open and position all the tables

BUT

Why on earth do you want your tables open. They are a means of STORING
information, not adding data, editing it or displaying it. With very few
exceptions all information should be entered through forms where there are
numerous methods of reducing typing and input errors.

Time consuming? In Access when one window is maximized, ALL windows are
maximized. So if you open the file and maximize the db window then any
table you open will automatically open maximized as well.
