    Hello

    I process information for a hr type facility. i Have a database that hold
    information that i want to share via a server i would like to create a front
    sheet instead of coming up with the the acces menu. I would like this screen
    to have a menu for the things that are on the database and also if they exit
    a section of the database it returns to this front menu.

    can anyone advise me how to do that?

    Use a form and add buttons to it to open your forms and reports. Set the
    startup form to use this form:

    Tools ... Startup

    and select the form being used for startup. Alternatively, you can use a
    macro named "autoexec" (without the quotes) to open the startup form.

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!
