Is there a way to display the ide in MS Access using code? I would like to have a database form that if the user puts in the correct password the ide is displayed.

Sorry, I didn't add one item (important). I am disabling the special keys on startup so the send key functionality does not work. Sorry, I should have included that. I was able to solve the problem using DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDebugWindow
