Copying an Access Database

P: 2
To save time I often copy a database and modify it for it's new role. Everything works well except for one really annoying issue.

Lets say you called the initial database 'Database 1' and later on you copied it and called it 'New Database'. When the newly completed database opens the name indictated on the upper left hand title bar is still that of the original database. I can't find anywhere that I can change the name. Any ideas?

I'm not sure if this will help or not but try:
  1. Select File ==> Database Properties ==> Summary Tab.
  2. Change the Text in the Title Text Box - it probably retains the original name of the Database.

Thanks for the reply. I found the answer. In the 'Startup Options Group' is the option to give your application a title. I must have done this at some point and forgot about it.
