I am developing a new system and would ideally like the switchboard to always be visible on the left hand side of the screen (about 4cm wide and cover from top to bottom).
When a new form is opened I would like this to open alongside the switchboard, NOT over the top of it, so the switchboard is still visible. The idea is for the user to be able to see all the buttons on the switchboard no matter what form they have opened so that they can open/close all the forms on the switchboard menu with ease.
As an extra, I intend to put code behind each button on the switchboard so that if a user has one form open and clicks a button to open another form it will close the currently open form first.
Is this possible in Access 2007?
