I was creating an opening form for my database so that users could easily browse through information. I decided to give them a form that would open up automatically and also not be able to be edited.

Well, long story short... Modal, Pop-up, No close and no other options. I was going to set up a close button, but I didn't realize that either modal or pop-up made it stay on top of everything and not let you actually use the forms behind.

How do i fix this??

I have all admin rights, is there a way to maybe disable having a form display on login? Haha. I'm cracking myself up on how bad of an idea that was.

I fixed it finally. Had to open up visual basic and then figure out how to open it in design mode. Haha. Lesson learned!

Alt-F4 closes Access.
Next time you open the database, hold down the shift (bypass) key.
This will open the database without the form opening.
Fix the error.
Save.
Remember for next time ;).

I should have mentioned first - Ctrl-F4 may close down the form for you too.

Good to know.

Shift to bypass
Ctrl-F4 to close form.
