Did you set up a Default Form to display when the database is open?  I am assuming that you are attempting to run the database using the Access Run Time.  Is this correct?  If so, then you should create a switch board of some sorts that allows the operator to select which form they would like to work with.

If you are deploying this with the Access Runtime, then you can simulate that environment by changing the file's extension to ".accdr". This forces Access to open the database like a Runtime user would see it, and you can troubleshoot from there.

bobox00,

You also need to worry about trusted locations. Are you creating a trusted location for the folder with your database?

I wrote an article on the subject that may help. See : What is the Access Runtime Version?
