    I changed the design of a form so that it no longer opened another form,
    "SWBAddRNumDlog." All VBA references to it have been removed. No controls
    refer to it in their RowSource definitions. When I open the database as
    administrator (Shift+password) and then run my programs, they work fine. But
    when I open the database without holding down the Shift, I get an error
    saying "SWBAddRNumDlog is missing, etc." I have re-compiled everything, and
    run Repair/Compact twice, to no avail. Does anyone know how I find that
    buried reference and get rid of it?

    Thanks!

    Open the database while holding down the shift key as you suggested.
    Go to Tools, Startup. Do you happen to see the form mentioned near the OK
    button? If so, remove it. If not make a note about any other form metioned in
    the Display Form/Page combo box. Chances are that form also opens or uses the
    problem form.

    If nothing useful is under Startup options, go to Macros and see if you have
    one named Autoexec. If so, check that macro for something which would open
    the form.
