Is there anyway to open a DB with a form or switchboard without having the access program container show? Ultimately, I'd like to have my main form open with a custom toolbar, and NOTHING else showing.

seach UA for "hide window" (with the brackets) there are plenty of posts with the same code which works nicely.

Thanks Danny, I'll do that. Also, can I use the Packaging Wizard to Deploy my DB to those not having Access installed? Is that a good or only way to do it?

OK I've been looking over the forums, and I've found some great code to do this. Upon thinking about this, I'd also like a way to overide the no container code just in case I need to adjust the DB. Do you know what I mean? It's kinda like the problem I encountered by using STARTUP and not allowing access to the DB, only the one form. Is this really a problem, mor am I missing a back door to get back inot the DB to change it if needed? It seems like you can screw yourself if not carefull.
In sunmary, I'd like to hide the Access contianer, in the end, but would like a way to change or overide the code to get back into it for DB level changes, if necessary.
Thanks again, you guys are great for taking this time tom help people.
