I've created my switchboard, split my db and made my mde...but when I open the mde it opens up like a regular mdb with my list of tables showing.
Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

Did you take the tick out of 'Display database window' in Tools-->Options before creating your mde and specify a start up form ?

Under which tab? I'm looking but I can't find it.

Sorry - it's in Tools-->Start Up which is what I meant to say (memories not what it used to be!!!)

Well, whaddya know. That did it. I chose the switchboard as the startup form and voila!
Thanks!!!

Don't forget to take the tick out of Display database window as well - and always make sure you keep a couple of working mdb backups before compiling your db into an mde, otherwise you also wont be able to make any design changes wink.gif
