Tip: Shortcut to Check a Form's Name in MS Access

In the Query Design window, when invoked from within a form's design view in MS Access, you can't go to the Database Window to check the name of an object while designing a parameter query, and as I do, copy and paste the name into the query (using and then cancelling Rename). A workaround is to invoke the Startup dialog by clicking Tools, Startup... from the Menubar, where you can view all forms in database from the Display Form/Page combobox, select the form in the combox, copy the name, and then click Cancel.
