I do some programming in MS access from time to time. I find that positioning is not as critical as size. as far as the ejector seat button - I tend to put one of those little red covers over it. A form in a database using the do.cmdOpenForm function can be opened as read only or be able to be edited. You definately dont want some goober going and opening it in editable form and then clicking on stuff - thus changing, deleting or otherwise messing stuff up. I usually have a check box to unlock another check box saying (in a more kind way) "Hey user of below average know how -if you choose to edit stuff you may loose data". Check boxes are small, and there is two of them. Someone who sees the "click this and it may break" check box will also tend to be scared away from "exploring".
