    I recently upgradd from Access 2000 to Access 2003 and it used to startup with my Favorites Group selected
    and open. This no longer happens and opens to Groups but not the Favorites. Any idea how I can get it to open
    to my Favorites Group at startup?

    TIA

    Nope. On the left side of Access is Groups and Objects. Under Groups is Favorites. I want this Group to open
    by default.

    Hi.

    There's no setting or function for this. The only way I can think of is to
    create an Autoexec macro with the following settings that will tab over to
    the Favorites group when the database is opened:

    Action: Sendkeys
    Keystrokes: {TAB}{TAB}~
    Wait: No

    Whenever you open the database, these keys will automatically be executed,
    but beware that it may have unintended consequences. At the very least, if
    you have the VB Editor open and compact the database, the database reopens
    to the VB Editor, not the Access window, so these keys are sent needlessly.
    If other processes are going on at the same time, processing these key
    strokes could be harmful. Sendkeys isn't recommended except as a last
    resort.

    HTH.

    Yuck...I wonder why it defaults there in Access 2000 just fine?

    Thanks for the reply.

    You're welcome.

    Each new version is an improvement over the last version. In Access 2007,
    it's so different that there's no Database Window any more, so you'll have
    to come up with a whole different approach.

    HTH.

    Sigh, Microsoft's idea of improvements and mine are obviously different.
