Switchboard

P: n/a
Is there a way of adding more than the 8 items to a switchboard on
Access 97? If so how?

Yes you can, however, the switchboard manager will still only
recognize 8 buttons. Maintenance will be difficult.

A better solution would be to use one of the 8 buttons to open a 2nd
switchboard page (and a 3rd, etc.). All of this can be done using the
manager.

The best solution would be to discard the current switchboard system
and simply create a new one, using an unbound form with command
buttons. You are not limited to 8 button,s and if you use the Command
Button wizard when adding the buttons, Access will even write most of
the code for you. You will actually have more control over the form
layout and functionality, and maintenance will be easier.
