How do you hide the database window (Nav Pain) in Access 2010
Posted on 2011-10-13
I've been programming in Access 2K for years and am now learning Access 2010.
In Access 2K I could hide the database window so that clients did not have access to the tables, querries, macros, etc. unless they had knowledge of the Access Special Keys.
Access 2010 seems to have done away with the Database Window in favor of a Navigation Pane, which also means the Hide Database Window option, previously in Tools -- Startup... is now missing.
I would like to roll out compiled copies of my Front End to my clients prevent them from even seeing the database window and ribbon, so that the only thing they see are the switchboard menus that I created.
Can I do this? If so, will there be an easy way for me to remove these restrictions when I startup Access 2010 (Such as holding down the control key)?
