We have a system that was purchased. I am adding some reports, queries, and
a form. I am thinking if there is way to let users open the form but I
don't have to add any button to the system that may have upgrade in the
future. Can I do that by having a hotkey or put the form on the pull-down
menu?

What are you doing to run the reports? Don't you have the same problem there
too?

Yes. The form is used to open reports.

Any modification you make such as having a hotkey or putting the form on the
pull-down menu will need to be reprogrammed into the next upgrade. How about
creating a companion .mdb file where you link to the tables you need for
your reports and then include the queries and reports in this file. When you
need to run these specific reports, you would open the companion .mdb file
and run the reports. You wouldn't have to do anythng when the next update is
installed unless the tables you link to are changed.
