Launch A Basic Splash Screen For You Database. 

Your Access database doesn't have to look and feel like every other database, at least not when your users open it. Here's how to create a low-tech splash screen--a screen that pops up when a user opens your database and then disappears after three seconds. Follow these steps: 

1. Open your database and create a new form called frmSplash. Place whatever text or images on it that you want to display when this form "splashes" onto the screen. 

2. Right-click the database window's title bar and choose Startup. From the Display Form drop-down list, choose frmSplash and click OK. 

3. Create a macro called macCloseSplash. It needs only one action: Close. In the Object Type field, select Form. Select frmSplash from the Object Name field. In the Save field, select No. Then save the macro. 

4. Open frmSplash in Design view and open the Properties window. 

5. On the Event tab, set the On Timer property to macCloseSplash. 

6. Set the Timer Interval property to4000. Then save your changes. 

With this configuration, when a user opens your database, the splash screen (form) will appear and then disappear after four seconds. To increase or decrease the amount of time the splash screen stays visible, adjust the value for the Timer Interval property.
