Starting up in code view

P: n/a
Have database written and undocumented by a former employee.
Design is the first DB is a form GUI and the second has the meat of the
data which populates the forms.

Its designed to read in the data from second DB and populate the forms
if one opens the first DB.

Problem is I don't know the key combo or command line term to make it
come up in code view. I can't view the code unless I rename the second
DB so the first can't find it and the debugger engages to show the
error. Then all the VBA modules are visible.

How do I bring the first DB up in code view normally?

Also, it uses workgroup username/password and the second database is
password protected. Have all those passwords, just indicating how the
product is launched.

Found the answer in a topic from 2001

Holding down the Shift key bypasses the startup form

Should have browsed longer.
