Access 2003 Embedded .wav File Removal

Hey guys,

I am working on a laptop for a client and she has an Access 2003 database that she works with.   When she launches her access database, Windows Media Player also launches and plays a .wav file that says "initating startup sequence".  I am trying to remove this .wav file from the database so the Windows Media Player stops launching with the database, but I have run into dead ends.  I don't know anything about MS Access so any  help would be much appreciated!!

1. Look for a macro named AutoExec

2. Go to menu File, Options (settings), Current database, third textbox: Show Form. If a form is listed here, open that form in design view and study its code module for OnOpen, OnLoad, OnCurrent, OnActivate events.

I don't see any Macros?   And there is no options or settings under file menu, can you be more specific?
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It will be in the navigation pane - if it is created, which is may not.

I am not seeing anything like that?  Is there some where in the code I can look for the File name?  Because when Media Player opens, it plays a file called OLE1EmbedStrm (3).wav?
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
And #2 reveals no form?

I am not sure what you mean?   There are no Macros that I can see and these instructions you gave:  (Go to menu File, Options (settings), Current database, third textbox: Show Form. If a form is listed here, open that form in design view and study its code module for OnOpen, OnLoad, OnCurrent, OnActivate events) I cant find??   My File Menu has open, save, get external data, Close, Backup, Page Setup, Print, Print Preview, File Search, Export, nothing  under file menu for Options or Settings,  I am running Access 2003 not 07 or 10
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Sorry, missed 2003 which I don't have present. Then it's some menu like settings, database options, start.

JazzanlexAuthor Commented:
There is no Settings, there is no Database Options?  There is Database Utilities Under the Tools Menu?   Or Options Under the Tool Menu?  

Also as a Note, I did some Autoexec research after you mentioned it and when I hold the Shift Key opening the Access DB, the .wav file does not play, but the database opens  in Design View and not the Form View I need.  Just FYI...
JazzanlexAuthor Commented:
Any other thoughts Gustav?
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It is Options, Start, top-right combobox.

JazzanlexAuthor Commented:
Unfortunately I don't see an Options...Start?    Under Tools there is Options, when I click there, there are Tabs Like General, Advanced, Tables/Queries, Spelling, etc..

I do see Startup Under the Tools menu, but that only contains Application Title, Application Icon, Display Form/Page, Menu Bar, Shortcut Menu Bar, all of which have drop downs.???
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It's Display Form/Page.

/gustav
JazzanlexAuthor Commented:
there really isn't anything there, it just a drop down box...I have attached a screenshot if that helps?

Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
I don't follow. It clearly states: frmMain

Thus, frmMain is the form that calls your wav file.
So #2 lists what to do.

Thanks for the Help Gustav, I was able to find the area your referring to but have not been able to find where the startup .wav file is playing.  I am going to play around with the file and see if I can solve it now that I know where to look.  thanks for your help.
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
You are welcome.

It's probably a single code line only.
