Join Robin Hunt for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting the database options, part of Building Solutions Using Excel 2013 and Access 2013 Together.
- Lets work with some database options…to make this look and feel a little bit…more like a software system.…You can go ahead and close my department list.…I wouldn't want to give people access…to my department list through the table…because then they could accidentally…change the design.…i can control them a little bit better…if I let them work with a form.…When they open the database I really…want all of this to be hidden and they…only see the form.…The way I do that is I go to my file menu…to Options.…
Now I would encourage you to spend a little…bit of time looking at all of the different options here.…But for class purposes lets go to a current database.…First of all i might want it to be my companies…department list or the name of my department…but for this example the application title,…what we see in the title bar will be…My Department Solution.…When people open up this database…I don't want them to open up and see what…I see as the designer.…I want them just to see my department list.…
Remember that's a form we created for data entry.…
