    Bypass startup to allow design

    I have an ADP file that I would like to work on the design of but when I try to open it it goes into the locked down menu and switchboard. In the past with MDB's I could hold down SHIFT to bypass this but this doesn't seem to be the case with this datbase so I assume the original designer coded it to not allow the bypass.

    So my question is, how do I get into it to edit it then? I'm guessing there is some sneaky way that I'm just not privy to
