Hnasr, that is good, can i have it though, that only the form displays and you cannot get to the queries or tables?

I dont want users looking in there, i just want them to run the query and the application will quit after

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Yes, also in the Access Options -> Current Database, there is checkbox for Display Navigation Pane.

If you uncheck, that, then the next time you open the database the navigation pane will be hidden.
