Reset Previous File History in Access 97?

Reset Previous File History in Access 97?

Hi, Tek-Tips!

I want to clear the file history in Access 97 without clearing the history in every program on my computer. Does anyone know a way to do this?

In Access 2002, it's under Tools, Options, General, Recently Used File List. I couldn't find a similar option in Access 97.

On my machine its in the registry under


With names "MRU1", "MRU2", "MRU3", etc.

You can also go to "Tools / Options / General" and uncheck the "Recently Used File List" box. That doesn't erase them but it does supress their display.

Thanks, Golom, I'll try that!
