Disable AutoStart Macro (MS Access)


Q. I have an MS Access file that I'm trying to open. While starting, it tries to run a macro that crashes (hangs, doesn't work, etc) and then kicks me out. What can I do?

A. Disable "AutoStart" macro. To do that press and hold the "Shift" button while opening your database.

Note: if your macro used to bring up forms and you've stopped it, you will need to open the forms manually. Click on the Drop-down menu in Navigation Pane and select "Forms" From there you'll be able to get the forms you are looking for

Thank you! You saved me so any hours of rework! I unthinkingly added some code to my FormLoad event that would quit Access on certain condition. Happened so that, "that" Condition was True ALL THE TIME! :D
