    Resolved [RESOLVED] How to recover your Access 2000 application if the start form doesn't exist?

    I made a form with my components on it. It was set to open as a starting form when you open the access file(mdb). However I didn't like the name of the form and changed it. I closed the application and tried to reopen it. Now when i open my Access 2000 application I get two error messages and then the window with the "Halt" button appears.

    How can I recover my application in this case?

    I have a backup of my mdb file, but it doesn't contain the changes I added today.

    Any clues?

    Isn't there a Keyboard-Shortcut to deactivate Macros during Startup? Something like
    "Hold your SHIFT-Key during Startup until something appears on your screen"
    One System to rule them all, One IDE to find them,
    One Code to bring them all, and to the Framework bind them,
    in the Land of Redmond, where the Windows lie

    Yes Shift + Enter jumps the startup macros.

    As zvoni said. hold shift until you get to the main access. Change the options of the db to your new form name.
