Either ...
While in the database press F11
Hold down the Shift key while opening the database.
Please only reply to this newsgroup.
I do not reply to personal email.

Hi DaveB,

Control the display of the Database window
Control the display of the Database window Help
Assistance Access 2003 Startup and Settings Installing and
Customizing Customizing an Access Application

Show All
Hide All
You can change the settings that determine whether the Database window
(Database window: The window that appears when you open an Access database
or an Access project. It displays shortcuts for creating new database
objects and opening existing objects.) is displayed when a Microsoft Access
file (Microsoft Access file: An Access database or Access project file. An
Access database stores database objects and data in an .mdb file. A project
file doesn't contain data and is used to connect to a Microsoft SQL Server
database.) opens. If you hide the Database window, you need to display a
startup form or data access page (data access page: A Web page, published
from Access, that has a connection to a database. In a data access page,
you can view, add to, edit, and manipulate the data stored in the database.
A page can also include data from other sources, such as Excel.) so that
others can navigate in your application.

On the Tools menu, click Startup.
Do one or more of the following:
To display or hide the Database window when a Microsoft Access database
(Microsoft Access database: A collection of data and objects (such as
tables, queries, or forms) that is related to a particular topic or
purpose. The Microsoft Jet database engine manages the data.) or Microsoft
Access project (Microsoft Access project: An Access file that connects to a
Microsoft SQL Server database and is used to create client/server
applications. A project file doesn't contain any data or
data-definition-based objects such as tables and views.) opens, clear or
select the Display Database Window check box.

To prevent or allow users from displaying the Database window by pressing
F11, clear or select the Use Access Special Keys check box.

If you have cleared both the Use Access Special Keys check box and the
Display Database Window check box, replace the File menu with your own
custom menu. This prevents the Database window from appearing when users
repeatedly open the same Access file from the list of most recently used

Changes to these settings in the Startup dialog box won't take effect until
the next time the Access file is opened.

The Northwind sample database has a Main Switchboard formó an example of a
form you might use to control navigation in your Access file. To view this
form, open the Northwind database in your Microsoft Office folder's Samples
folder. Click Forms under Objects in the Database window, click Main
Switchboard, and then click the Open button on the Database window toolbar.

Please let me know has this helped You...
Thank you...
