Access Database won't run

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope you can help me. I have written a small client database which, up
    until Thursday worked fine.

    When I clicked the Icon to run my client database, MS Access started but no
    client database. I have tried running it directly from within Access but it
    is as if there was nothing there. Yet, when I check in explorer, the file is
    there (30 mb).

    I have tried running other databases and they come to life no problem.

    Is there anyway of getting my client database to open.

    Yours hopefully

    Jay

    ps. I have also posted this on the 'gettingstarted' newsgroup, so there is
    no need to reply to both. J

    Jay,
    Try starting the database with the Shift key depressed. That will bypass
    any code that may run at startup time.

    By posting separately in more than one newsgroup, you have to look more than
    one place to see if there's an answer, and those who might help end up
    duplicating efforts. If your situation truly calls for posting in more than
    one 'group, select the appropriate groups in the "To/Newsgroups:" section.
    That way, answers in one 'group show up in the other 'groups you posted to.

    (already answered in another group!)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
