We have several queries that are all one topic. Instead of have a list a mile long with everything jumbled together, can you arrange them into folders?

Hi cozmo_troll,

In the database window, below the 'Objects' (tables, queries, etc.) look at 'Groups'.  Do a right-click:New group below the Groups title, then you can create 'folders' and store shortcuts for any table, query, etc. you wish into them.

Hope this helps.
-Jim

Not that I'm aware of.

Here's an idea, though: rename your queries by putting the topic name at the beginning.  Access sorts your queries in alphabetical order, so by doing this it will rearrange your queries by topic.  Does that make sense?

Guess I need to make myself more aware of things.  :)

Jim,

Will this mess up any of the links to reports?

Their use/non-use in Groups has no effect on their functionality anywhere in your app.  All you're doing is arranging shortcuts.
