You can create a new function where you can put the code in and call this function StartUp() for instance.
Now create a new macro and select RunCode from the Action-dropdownlist. Enter StartUp in the Function Name textbox. Save the macro as AutoExec. The AutoExec-macro will be executed first when you open the database according your startup-settings. So close and reopen the database to in order to notice any effect.


Hope this might help you out,

Here is some code I use.  Notice the second function calls the first function to make the changes

Function ChangeAppTitle()
   
    Dim intX As Integer
    Const DB_Text As Long = 10
    intX = AddAppProperty("AppTitle", DB_Text, "Nfobase - Version No " _
    & DMax("[Version No]", "Version No"))
    Application.RefreshTitleBar

End Function

Function AddAppProperty(strName As String, varType As Variant, varValue As Variant) As Integer
    Dim dbs As Object, prp As Variant
    Const conPropNotFoundError = 3270

    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    On Error GoTo AddProp_Err
    dbs.Properties(strName) = varValue
    AddAppProperty = True

AddProp_Bye:
    Exit Function

AddProp_Err:
    If Err = conPropNotFoundError Then
        Set prp = dbs.CreateProperty(strName, varType, varValue)
        dbs.Properties.Append prp
        Resume
    Else
        AddAppProperty = False
        Resume AddProp_Bye
    End If
End Function
