How to change the color of the buttons or the button from the
switchboard?

I use Access2003 but the database is from <2003, so the buttons are
gray and squaired.

Not using Access as delivered.

1) You can use an unbound label, color it as you wish.
Set it's SpecialEffects property to Raised, and code it's Mouse Up
event (LabelName.SpecialEffect = 1) and Mouse Down event
(LabelName.SpecialEffect = 2) to simulate movement.

Then code the label's click event as you would a command button.

2) Set a colored background as the Command Button Picture
property. You can use MSPaint to create the color picture background.
(Include the caption in the MSPaint picture, not in the command button
caption property.) A small bit of practice to get the size right, but
once you do it it's easy.

3) See
