    I have quite a few access programs that I have created. Can I create an
    Master Access program that calls these other programs instead of trying to
    combine all of them into one program?

    Your question is a little confusing so I am going to ask some questions.

    --> What do you mean by Access programs? Are you talking about databases,
    functions, or modules?

    --> What do you mean by Master program? You state you want a master program
    but you don't want to combine them into one program. A master would contain
    everything.

    I have databases. I have three separate databases called find customer, find
    address, and find phonenumber. I want to create a new database that has a
    form that say has three buttons or something that would allow me to call or
    pull up the three databases instead of trying to copy and paste all of the
    information from the databases into this new database.

    Sastr,

    The effort required to do what you want is as much if not more than simply
    importing the tables, forms, modules, queries, reports from the other
    databases.

    To import, go to File, Get External Data, Import...

    You can import everything in no time at all. This will save you future
    headaches of managing four separate db's that should be one.

    Doesn't this make the database run slowly because each of my databases
    already run slowly. I was trying to avoid the timing issue because the people
    whom are using the different databases have already complained about the time
    it takes to run them.

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!
