How do I reload a deleted main switchboard?

    I deleted the switchboard in an application to enter correct version. I have
    created the new version and can't see how to get Access to recognize it in
    Forms from the Switchboard manager. I am using Access 2003.

    I don't think you can recover a deleted form (The Switchboard is just a
    form). If you have a new version that you like you can just use it as the
    Switchboard.

    Do you wish to have the new switchboard use the same functions as the
    old one ...
    If you still have a table named 'Switchboard Items' in your database
    you can change it's name to 'Switchboard ItemsOLD'.
    Then, using the Switchboard Manager, create a new switchboard with
    just one command.
    Save it.
    Then delete the new 'Switchboard Items' table and rename the original
    one back to 'Switchboard Items'. Your new switchboard will have the
    functionality of the old one.

    It's a complicated solution to a simple problem.

    Why not create your own switchboard using an unbound form and command
    buttons? If you use the command button wizard when adding the buttons,
    Access will even write most of the code for you. You'll have more
    control over it's appearance and functionality. Maintenance will be
    much simpler.
