    Shift/Enter in Access 2003

    I develop a database for a company a long time ago that's in Access97. They have now converted it to Access2003 but, since I don't have Access2003 at home, I can't answer their question below:

    I need to know how to disable the shift enter to allow me access to
    queries in IRAP if I load in 2003. Thus far the conversion looks fine
    but I cannot get into the program.

    THe SHIFT/ENTER allows you to display the database window when the "Display Database Window" option is de-selected in the startup options. They need to be able to get to the database window in Access2003.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Paul, but that doesn't really give me what I need....

    The guy is in Yanpet, Saudi Arabia with a database he created in Access97 that has the startup option "Display Database Window" de-selected. In 97 and in 2000, you can override that startup option by holding down the Shift key. He needs to be able to do so in Access2003. Since I don't have Access2003, I can't play with it.

    PLEASE don't make me be a forum-slut again, Paul!

    Nevermind. According to Microsoft, you can still use the Shift key to override the startup options. The guy in Saudi is probably just doin' it wrong!

    Thanks anyway.

    Probably. Make sure he's using his left hand.
