Thread: hidden table names

  1. #1

    hidden table names

    There is a way to hide the tables from the users even when looking at a table view. I have a customer who I hid the table names from many years ago, but can't remember how it is done. I need to get back into some of those tables now, but can't see the tables in table view. What commands did I use to hide the table name originally?

    right click on Navigation Pane Heading and choose Navigation Option, then

    or using VBA:

    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim td As DAO.TableDef
    Set db = Currentdb
    Set td = db.TableDefs("yourTableName")
    td.Attributes = 0                        'dbHiddenObject, will hide your table
    set td = Nothing
    set db = Nothing
