In pre-2007 versions it's Tools menu: Startup..., then set the Startup form.

I'm still trying to get past all those 'user-friendly' ribbons to do normal Menu stuff.

open access, go to tools/startup and then, in the upper right, where it says display form/page, select the form you'd like to auto open.

fanopoeCommented:
look across the very top of your application. You'll see things like File, Edit, Tools, etc...
If you don't see it then you are probably using an application that somebody else programmed, right?

let us know

Fanopoe: I have been using MS Access old versions too; like "access 2000" & "access 2003".
They all have "things" like File, Edit, Tools, etc. But now I am talking about "access 2007"
Microsoft changed all its office software's interface a lot this time.
Following is link of an image on microsoft help website, where you can see how "Access 2007" interface look like.
http://office.microsoft.com/global/images/default.aspx?assetid=ZA101657881033
Instead of main menu options "file, edit, tool...." now it has "Home, Create, External Data, Database Tools"
You can also read article about new changes in "Access 2007" at following link, which also explain about major changes in interface.

Please let me know if I am understanding something totally wrong way, I would love to learn about my mistakes, if any.

Click the Office button in your top left corner of your screen. Go to Access

Options. Then go to Current Database and select  display form
