Getting Past Menu/toolbar Hiding
Posted on 2001-07-18
I have been hired to make changes to an Access system. It is a VBA system, so the system is entirely contained in a single .mdb file.
Problem is that when I open the file, a login form comes up, and all the Access menu options and toolbars are hidden. I can login ok, but I cannot get into Design mode to change anything.
I managed to get around this to an extent, by importing all the tables, queries, forms, etc into a new database file. I did the import using FILE--> Get External Data utility off the menu in the new DB. I can make the changes I need to make in this new DB, but then I don't know how to put the changes I made back into the .mdb file that has its menus locked.
What should I do?
