Create a Startup Shortcut and Splash Screen


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to create a startup shortcut with a different icon, and a splash screen for your Microsoft Access database that will display upon startup instead of the Access logo. We'll also change the application name, icon, startup form, turn off the navigation bar, status bar, and special keys.

Davis from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (a Gold Member) asks: I'm designing an Access database that I want to set my clients up with, however I don't want them to know it was built in Access. You and I both know that Access is awesome, but a lot of people have this misconception that it's not a "real" database application. What can I do?

Members

Members will learn how to further hide traces of Access by turning off the Ribbon menus, maximize the startup form, and create an internal splash screen with a 5 second delay before the Main Menu loads, so you can emphasize your own branding.

Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

You can't put any lines of code after the Close command. Once that's issued the form shuts down. You can do it from outside the form, like in a global module, but not in a form module.

Hmmm...  Mine  has been working like a champ.

You can't put any lines of code after the Close command.
Agreed.  Nothing after the close other than the open form.
The close then open are right back to back and the code completes just fine (for years).  Maybe I've just been lucky.
Wouldn't surprise me that I was told wrong (or read wrong) I honestly don't remember where I learned it.  I just know it wasn't you.  Try it though.  Reverse it and it still completes and runs successfully.
