Application.Name

P: n/a
Hello,

I'm almost embarrassed to ask this question, but my searches have not
yielded any results.

How does one change what the Application.Name property returns in
Access 2003? I see that it is a read only property at runtime, but is
there a way to change it at design time? No matter what I do,
Application.Name always returns "Microsoft Access". I tried setting a
value in the Application Title under Tools, Startup from the Access
menu but Application.Name apparently has nothing to do with this
setting (i.e., typing
?Application.Name in the immediate window still prints "Microsoft
Access".)

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Bruce

Change your startup options.... (Tools/Startup)

Thanks Bradley, but did you read my post before you replied? What
would you have me change in Tools/Startup?

Why, did I misunderstand you?

(Snipping it and my reply from this post doesn't help).

You'd change the Application Title. Then when you open your database
this name will be displayed instead of "Microsoft Access".

(If you open your database by holding down the shift key, or you don't
have an Autoexec or Startup form, then this doesn't work).

Hi Bradley,

I appreciate your efforts to help, but I think you're trying to answer
a question I didn't ask. My question is in regards to the Name
property of the Application object, i.e., is there a way to affect what
the Name property of the Application object returns. For example, try
the following:

Open the Northwind database that comes with Access. Select Tools,
Startup, and change the Application Title property to "Bradley's
Database". Now add the following line of code to the Load event of the
Main Switchboard form:

Me.Caption = Application.Name

Now view the Main Switchboard form in Form view and note what you see
in the form's title bar versus the database title bar.
