    How do I clear the list of recent dbs?

    When you first open Access 2007 you can see a list of recent databases on the right under the heading 'Open Recent Database.'

    How do I clear that list?

    Thanks - rev

    Just curious - why?

    I have 2003 and there is an option on the tools menu -- you can set it to 0.

    Why? I have copies in different locations and they've been getting out of sync because I inadvertently use the wrong one.

    Tools menu doesn't exist in 2007, Help > Clear Recent - doesn't yield anything useful.

    Hi revnice,

    In Access 2007 do the following:

    Click Access button top left corner-Access Options-Advanced-Scroll down to display and set "Show this number recent Documents" set to 0 or 1

    Should work!!
