Access 2010 Options, Startup and Switchboard manager

I have been asked by a new client to modify an application that has been converted to Access 2007/2010 format.  I'm not sure what version of Access it was written in, I have no history with the app and the client doesn't know either.

The app opens directly to a Switchboard that was set up with the canned Access switchboard manager that I've used many times in Access versions thru Access 2003.

I have looked thru all of the Access 2010 Ribbons and tool bars but I don't see the  'Switchboard Manager' option that existed in prior versions of Access and I'm sure was used to create this opening switchboard.  I eventually need the switchboard manager to revise the menu but right now I just want to determine which actions are being initiated by each switchboard option.

Where is the Switchboard manager in Access 2010?

Where are the application startup options in Access 2010?  This is where you can specify a form (and other things) that the application should open on start up?

Switchboard Manager is on the Database Tools tab of the Ribbon, Administer group.

Startup options: click File, then Options, and in the Access Options dialog select Current Database.  That will allow you to set a form to open at start-up, app name, etc.

Found the startup options, thnks.

However, I don't have 'Adminster Group' on my Database Tools Ribbon.  Or at least I don't see it.

Have you opened your database?  That group only shows up if you have a current database open.

Oh bugger.  Looks like that Administer group only shows up when you have an old format (i.e., .MD*) file open...

You can add it to your Quick Access Toolbar:

1) From QAT, hit the dropdown and select More Commands

2) In Choose Commands From dropdown, select Database Tools Tab

3) Select Switchboard Manager and click Add
