Open data entry form directly

    Is there any easy way to open an access form directly, and only.
    Generally speaking, we've got a service request database, and we want
    the end users to be able to enter a new request. I thought o using a
    web form for this, but the built in components don't support everything
    we want, and I haven't got the skill to build something from scratch.
    I'm hoping to put a link to the request form in their start menu so
    that they have easy access to making a new request. I'm hoping though
    to avoid them opening up the whole database in order to do it.

    Is there any simple answer to this?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi Mick

    Go to Tools - Startup then select the form you want to be available on
    entry to the d base.

    To remove this option you can always press the shift key on opening the d
    base then remove the option

    Hope this helps

    Sorry Mick, just read your thread again.

    You want a simple "answer" (I spend most days trying to simplify the stuff
    that other people do on our d bases).

    So here is a "simple" answer.

    Why not copy your data input form. Remove all links to other sections of
    the d base (buttons, etc) and also remove the the ms toolbar from "this"
    form. Make this form the one that is opened when your users make thier
    request.

    This may need a bit of gigging about about to get what you want but it is
    "simple". Of course you "can" code your standard form to do all this on
    responce to input (button press from user) BUT what's the point.
