Hello friends;
I want to create application consist only from an icon
when user click this icon open switchform in the protected Access Db
I want to pass the Password to DB and open Swichform
User can't open DB without this icon because its protected
How can I do that
Thanks

Hi. One approach is to have the "icon" pass an argument to the protected Access DB and then have the protected Access DB check for this argument at startup. If it doesn't exist, then it should quit and not open up.

You could consider using the UserControl property to prevent the database being opened directly.
