I've finally finished my database whooohoo! I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on any finishing touches I should/could do?
1. I have a form that acts like a switchboard, I already have it opening on startup. Currently it is set to open as a dialog window, Is there a way to make it the only window? As in without access main window behind it? I was thinking of maybe hiding the ribbon, but I'm not sure how to do that with webforms. Webforms do not have design mode.
2. I also saved it as an accde file. Anything else I should do?
3. Also I'd like to put it up on sharepoint, does godaddy work? If not, any suggestions on where to go for a sharepoint server and estimated cost?
Thanks for the advice!

Have you disabled the shift bypass? (does that apply to webforms??) You can hide the access program ui by using "docmd.runcommand accmdappminimize" in the on load event of your switchboard screen. (again.. does this apply to webforms??)
I've had issued with accde files on our network. Not sure why (don't even remember the exact problem?) something about being unable to enable macro's and coding because the file was not writeable.. use with care. Make sure you fully test an accde on a network before you distribute.
Know nothing about sharepoint.
