Go to Tools - Startup and there is an option there to disable shortcut keys and to hid the database window, etc.

To lock a user out of entering data in a calculated field you can set the field properties in the form to Enabled = No or Locked = Yes

Hi
Thanks for your help. but what i need is just enable the shortcut keys and also not all of the. I just need that the form short cut be enable and the rest be disable. if i do what you said the whole window data base would get disappear. i want the window database be enable, just the form short cut key be enable but table, query and report , macro,.. be disable.

thanks alot

Have a little think about it voroojak.
If you disable showing of the database window, you can then set a form to open automatically. From this form you need to arrange to link to any others. Typically you would use the 'Switchboard Wizard' to create one of these forms. Does that help?
