Switchboard design

P: n/a
I am trying to create a Switchboard using the Switchboard Manager in MS
Access
2000. I have managed to get the table created for the switchboard, however
it hasn't actually created the form.

Hopefully I will have a main switchboard which will in turn lead to three
sub switchboards.

Can anybody tell me how to get the form automatically created from the
Switchboard Table if at all possible?

Cheers

Word of advice, DON'T use the MS switchboard manager, create your own
switchboard using an unbound form adding your own command buttons and code.
You'll have a lot more control of how the switchboard operates and you won't
have that table which the manager creates.

I agree. The Switchboard Manager is a complex solution to a simple problem.
From all the questions, difficulties, and complaints we see here in the
newsgroup, I fear it creates more problems than it solves.

I don't use it... it is easy enough to follow Jeff's advice and use unbound
forms with command buttons.
