MS Access 2000 grey screen

P: 1
Application does open, to a grey screen, but not access to database. 5mb of data exists, Explorer tells me so.

I encountered a similar problem at work with Excel not so long ago, which was resolved by resizing the spreadsheet, Excel had minimized the spreadsheet. I think this is the same problem in Access, I just don't know where to go to adjust the minimize/maximize in Access.

You possibly have one of a number of issues.
1. Have you actually opened a database?
Try File / Open to see if this resolves the issue.
2. Is the database window minimised?
Try Alt-- (Alt & Minus) followed by x to maximise the current window within the application.
3. Is the database window hidden?
Try F11 to show it. This will only work if this key has not been disabled for this database.
