      Description of the issue

      I have created my database it has many layouts. One of my layouts is a start page so the employees can go directly to there layout. I have moved the start page to the top of the list in layouts but it dosen't open on that page.

          Thank you for your post.

          To set a specific layout to be a start page or to make a layout the default one opened to:

          1. Click File>File Options
          2. Under the “Open” pane check the box “Switch to layout” and specify the layout in the list you wish to see upon open.

          If you quit and reopen the database, the file should open to the chosen layout.
