Hi Folks!
My programmer wrote an Access app that, when you open it, it automatically runs and then closes automatically after it runs. I'd like to look at the VB code and also check some of the external connections. So, how do i open this Access app without running it so that i can see the code and the connections?


thanks! Kristin

Try opening the database from the Explorer while holding down the Shift key (Shift-Enter on the file name).  A few tries will usually get the database open without running any opening code.
