"Edit the startup properties for an MDB file."The Property Editor utility allows you to edit the startup properties for an MDB file without having to open the database directly. The utility is primarily intended for Access developers who prefer to distribute their mdb or mde applications with the AllowBypassKey property disabled.
Startup properties affect how your database application appears when it is opened. For example, startup properties enable you to customize the application's title bar, menus, toolbars, and startup form.
The Property Editor exposes 12 of the standard properties available from MS Access and in addition, also exposes the Allow "SHIFT" To Bypass Startup Options (AllowBypassKey) property, useful for developers who wish to further secure their database design. In some cases, with an MDB's startup properties, you can alter options that could result in you being locked out of your database design. If you are faced with this situation, you can quickly edit the database startup properties with the Property Editor without having to import all the objects into a new database file or write VBA code in an external database to reset the properties.
(Access 2000 or later users should ensure that the mdb file that they wish to edit is not set to compact on close. Please read the FAQs for more help.)
Create An MDE:
The Create MDE option also allows you to apply your desired startup properties and create an MDE file with those properties enforced.
Requirements: Microsoft Access 97 or later.
