    Correcting the order of the images for the splash screen start up

    To keep the question simple, i have a macro built to create a kiosk feel with a splash screen that disappears after 3 secs and opens the main menu (all with a gray background). When i click the marco to run it, it works perfectly but when i open the program, it doesn't show the splash screen but instead the gray background for 3 sec and then opens the main menu. What am I doing wrong?

    Open Form: Main Menu Background
    Open Form: Splash Screen

    Splash Screen Property:
    On timer: embedded macro:
    Close form: Splash Screen
    Open Form: Main Menu

    Access Options:
    Current Database:
    Display Form: Splash Screen

    If you have code opening Splash Screen, why have it set as default in Options?

    Do you have the requisite image in the db folder so that the application splash is suppressed? If not, the Access application splash may be interfering with your sequence - or are you not seeing that at all?
    - "doesn't work" doesn't help. Implement changes in copies of your database.

    what value have you set the splash screen timer interval to? It should be 3000 (1000=1 second)

    might also be better if your timer macro, opens main menu, then closes splash
