    Is it possible to change the limit on the number of items allowed on any
    switchboard. The limit I have come across is 8 and I need about a dozen items
    on one. If it is possible, how do I do that?

    The only limit on number of selections on a Switchboard is that imposed by
    the Switchboard Manager. I don't use the Switchboard Manager, because I
    consider it a complex solution to a simple problem... with a table and (not
    well documented) limits and quirks.

    I note that Karl gave you a solution that involved manual modification of
    the output of the Switchboard Manager, an approach that I definitely do not
    recommend. Unless you are knowledgeable about the internals and operation of
    the Switchboard Manager, your changes are likely to be lost, or broken, if
    you again use the Switchboard Manager attempting to maintain your
    Switchboard (perhaps not even the same Form that you modified).

    I'd suggest you use an unbound Form, and add the Command Buttons you need to
    open the Forms for each "feature" you include in your switchboard...
    assuming you already have those Forms defined, the Command Button Wizard
    will lead you through defining them. If, as is sometimes the case, you need
    to limit the Records to be displayed on a Form or Report you are opening,
    you can add that functionality with just a little knowledge of VBA.

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!
