Switchboard from hell - Access 2000

P: n/a
I did some customizing on my switchboard (changing colors and adding
graphics) to make it more appealing. I tried to add another item, and it
told me that 8 was the limit. Fine. I deleted one item so that I could add
another switchboard. I have done this several times in the past, but it
will not open the new switchboard. The button just goes in and out and that
is it.

So, I decided to create a new switchboard and scrap the old one altogether.
Right....

It tells me I cannot delete the default switchboard.

I now want to start over and make a new switchboard that works. How do I
start fresh and scrap the old one??

TIA

There's no need to use the Switchboard Manager add-in that comes with
Access. This add-in creates a table to store all the values in which isn't
really required jus to open up a form. Just create an unbound form with
command buttons to open up your forms and reports. This way you can have
more than 8 buttons on the form and you can then arrange the buttons around
to your own liking.

Real developers dont use Switch board. I would use the custom menus and
create a menubar.

To start agains you could create a new db and import all the objects except
the switchboard.
