You'll need to log in, run the end of day routines and close the day.


User = bakebox

Pass = grace

Sorry but it will not open here

Can you do this. Open the program

On the Tools menu, click Options, click the General tab, and the click to select the Compact on Close check box

Than close Access and let it compact.

Reopen and try to close the day.

Let me know the results please

have been asked by Mike look at this, my name isXXXXX is an application on access with enhanced security, it is not possible to get to any of the database controls nor to use it on another copy of microsoft access. I don;t believe you will be able to fix this, it is probably a question for the developer...

If you hold Shift, and than open it with Shift held down

Can you get to the tools?
