Launching Access application in the task bar

P: 1

Just wondering if you could help me.

Im trying to set up a database so that once the computer is booted up it can open the access application and minimise it in the system tray and just wondering what the best way to do this is?

Im using Windows xp and ms access 2003.

Create a shortcut to MSACCESS.EXE and set the properties of the shortcut to start minimized. Your shortcut target should be "Path To Access" "Path to Database" or something like the following

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\MSACCESS.EXE"  "C:\MyDB.mdb"
copy and paste a copy of this shortcut into your startup folder and you should be all set to go.
