I'm almost embarassed to be asking this question, but here goes..

I want to size the Access application window when it opens,  I found the below message with code to do this.  TheAmigo says to put this in the startup.  Where exactly is that?

Add this code to your startup:

Private Declare Function MoveWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal bRepaint As Long) As Long

MoveWindow Access.Application.hWndAccessApp, 20, 30, 600, 300, 1


Not very difficult, sorry for the basic question.

Here's how I did it.
Paste this into a module:

Private Declare Function MoveWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal bRepaint As Long) As Long

Public Function sizeIt()
MoveWindow Access.Application.hWndAccessApp, 20, 30, 600, 300, 1
End Function


Then create a macro called "Autoexec"
1 line in it:
RunCode
At the bottom (where it says function name) put "Sizeit()"

That ought to get you going.

Access lets  you designate one form to be opened at system startup (Tools, Startup)

You can create a macro to run when this form is opened.

(Form properties, events, OnOpen  : select "Event Procedure" and click the [..] button

THen copy and paste in the code that you want to run.

You can leave the form open (maybe with a menu on it) or close it down by adding a Close command
