MSACCESS STARTUP

P: n/a
Hi All

I would like to know if anyone can help me with the following problem I
am experiencing. I have created a Splash Screen and when my application
starts up it first displays the MsAccess Splash Screen then the one I
created. How can I allow at startup that only the Splash screen I have
created shows.

Thanks

Mike

You should just be able to create a bmp image, place it in the same
directory as your database, and call it the same as your database, and
it *should* replace the MS Access splashscreen.
So if your database was called: MyDatabase.mdb
You would simply place your own splashscreen bitmap in the same
directory and call it: MyDatabase.bmp

....or, if you want to use your splash form to actually do something useful,
create a single pixel bmp and name it YourAppName.bmp where "YourAppName" is
the same as YourAppName.mdb and place it in the same directory as your app
front end.

....this will not be seen by the user and Access will go directly to your own
splash form.
