How to open a protected access file and shorcut keys

P: n/a
Hello!
I have got a problem. i have an access database which has no
menues(File,Edit,View...the access menues) and so on so i can't edit
nothing. i can only see the main form and i can use the database. I
can't edit it or change it because I don't know how to get the main
screen with all listed forms, tables, queryes and so on...Please help
me!
And my secont question: how can i make a shorcut key for example in a
database,in a form I would like to press let's say F12 and then it
would open a report or query or print a table or something like that!
Plese help!
Bye,

Danijela

If you have a database that has all the menus removed, then it's
obvious that you did not create the database. You should contact the
author before making any changes to it. The menus are removed to keep
people that don't have authorization or knowledge to be making changes
to their work.

Most programers (user or professional) enjoy sharing their knowledge
and work, so long as it is a copy and people aren't messing with a
working database or program.

You might try pressing <Ctrl> <F11>, assuming Access 2000 or later.

If that doesn't work you might try holding down the Shift Key when you
click on whetever to open the file (and keep it held down until the
opening is complete.)

Sometimes these keys have been disabled; if this is the case then a
code solution may be required; let us know.
