After you remove edit fonts, how do you return to design view

    I inadvertently removed all edit fonts under tools and start-up to prevent
    Soldiers from making changes to my database. Now I need to make changes and
    cannot figure out how to reimplement the fonts to make changes. Any help you
    can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    I really don't know what you did but it sounds like something in your
    Access environment. If you can't figure a way out of it you might
    have to protect all of your valuable Access applications and then try
    to Repair your Office installation. If that doesn't do it, you may
    need to Uninstall Office and reinstall it.

    If all that might take to long in the face of urgencies, if someone
    else has an Access development environment going, see if you can move
    a copy of your stuff over there for emergency maintenance.

    FWIIW it shouldn't be necessary to resort to drastic measures to
    protect your application's design. As a last step before making it
    available to the world at large, make an MDE. It is the MDE that the
    troops should be running. You keep your MDB where only you and your
    eventual relief can get at it.

    By the way, if you haven't already done so, you should have split your
    application into a Back End, with just the tables, and a FrontEnd with
    everything else. Maintenance is much easier that way than trying to
    maintain a monolithic chunk of data and design.
