Get Rid of Switch board?

P: n/a
I removed a switchboard from a database I did not
make and now before I can start it up ( MS Access 2003 )
I get an Error Dialog Box Saying "The form name Switchboard is
misspelled or refers to a form that doesn't exist. If the invalid form
name is in a macro, an Action Failed dialog box will display the macro
name and macro's arguments .....

I have no macros in this very simple 3 table database that I can find
but I have never made a macro and have never used switchboards so I
don't know where to look.

Help

Rob

Open to the database window. Click on Tools - Startup and look at Display
Form in the dialog that appears to see if your switchboard form is there. If
it is, remove it.

Under Tools, Startup, is there anything in the Display Form/Page?

I don't have access 2k3, but in 2k, a 'default' form can be specified
in the 'Startup' options on the 'Tools' menu.

Select Tools then "Start up" and see if there is anything under
Display Form. if it has anything in their. delete it. (this is under
access 97) not sure if there the same one as access 2003.
the original person must of wanted the database to run the switchboard
when the database opens. so when you deleted the switchboard, access
is still looking for it.
hope this helps.
