Summing multiple fields on a form

Ive created a database but can only open it by opening the database and
clicking on the switchboard. What do I need to do, to have it open to the
switchboard when I click on the database name?

Set the Switchboard to open in
Tools, Startup, Display Form/Page... then select the form you want to
open when the database opens.

Make the switchboard form the "startup form". The steps differ by version -
what flavor of Access are you running?

Hi,


If you use Access 2007 follow the following steps:

click on the Access logo in the left upper corner
click on the button at bottom of this menu named 'Access Options'
in the new opened window, click on the second button in the left pane named
'Current database'
on the third line in the right pane, select the form of your choise
(frmSwitchboard?) in the dropdown list next to the words 'Display form:'

If you use another Access version, you should look for a similar setting
(sorry but I don't remember)

Good luck
