Folks,
Just another senior moment in paradise. It's been a while since I used Access. Where do I locate the option that when a database is open it launches a specific form? Where do I go to create a mde file?
This is for Access 2010

1.  Startup form:  If you click on the File tab, then select Options, then select Current Database.  The 4th item in the Application Options is Display Form:  Select your startup form in that dropdown.
