    Custom Shortcut menus in access 2007 subforms (2007)

    Having converted an access 2003 db to 2007 format
    (although it doesn't seem to make any difference whether you do this or not),
    I find that the Shortcut menus that I had only work on the parent form
    not the subform, or for that any special shortciut menus on specific controls on the subfrom.
    Do I need to make these menus again?
    Can Access 2007 cope with the shortcut menus in subforms on the new improved? version?
    I know the main menus and toolbars are obsolete, but I thought that pop up menus still functioned.
    Could it be that I am using the same pop up menu on both the main and sub forms?

    (Edited by HansV to make URLs clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    HHHHMMMMM!!!!!!

    I've just googled this and it appears from what I read that this is a feature.
    That will be one of those Microsoft improvements then eh (if it is).

    There is a hotfix for this (pretty well not made public by MS as far as I can see).

    Hot fix is No kb935875

    Read about it at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935875

    I could not find the actual download on the MS site BIT I guess someone else more patient might be able to.

    I got a copy here though and it worked!

    No problem.

    Thanks for the info on making URL's clickable though.
    I was not aware of this feature until then.
