Unlocking a database

gigifarrow used Ask the Experts™
I have a database that has a form pop up when you open it. When I look on the current Database tab on the access option dialog box the form doesnt show up. I can edit some forms but not all. I cant do F11 when that forms pops up. I have to close the form then do F11. I need to be able to edit all the forms and tables. The navigation options on the Access option dialog box has them as being diplayed, But it doesnt display even if you hit F11.

Hold down the shift key when opening the DB.  If it has not been turned off, that will bypass calling the autoexec macro and any actions it's performing.
