    I was linking documents in my database when it quit responding and I had to
    restart. When I opened my Access 2000 application only the Switchboard
    displays on the screen but not the database table. The Tools>Startup>Display
    Database Window checkmark block is still checked. When I select an item from
    the Switchboard all of my data entrys are still there. Can someone let me
    know how I can access my database table? Thanks for you help.

    It might just have jumped way off screen. Try going to Window, Cascade and
    see if it shows.

    Also try pressing the F11 key a couple of times.

    Otherwise it might corruption. Tony Toews has an excellent web page on
    database corruption.

    Allen Brown also has excellent info on corruption.

    I have a white paper in a Word document named Fix Corrupt Access Database
    towards the bottom this page:

    Jerry, thanks. I tried Cascade and that did the trick. I do sincerely
    appreciate your help. Additionally, I was using two monitors and had the
    database table stretched from one monitor to the other. What is strange
    though is that there were no scroll bars either vertical or horizontal to
    indicate that the database table was there. I tried F11 the first time with
    no results. But Cascade solved my problem. Jerry have a great weekend and
    thanks again.

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!
