Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the form called frmSplash.

Attach code to the Timer event of the form and tidy it up so that this is what you see when you go into your database:

The splash form should stay on screen for about a second

When the splash form closes itself after a second, you should then see the frmActor form:

This is what you should be left with

When you have tested all of this, save and close all of the forms.
